I spent the first month of the year 2011 in Israel. Being from Tel-Aviv I spent most of the trip there. About a week ago I finished putting together the images from my month long trip. With my camera I aimed to highlight the diversity of the architecture and the unique look of this small city – where so much has happened.
The picture above was taken near the spot where a bomber blew himself up in Tel-Aviv - on Purim 1996. . The attack was the fourth suicide bombing in Israel in nine days. I remember as a kid going there and looking at the white stripes of the crosswalk, for a few months you could see exactly where it happened, as the paint where he pulled the trigger was smudged. I hope that there is a new future for the Middle East. I want to believe that the new generation will understand that violence is not the solution.
