Tel Aviv: The sea, the sky and everything in-between

In the third installment of this series, Dror Davidman's lens catches the essence of Tel Aviv – Jaffa municipality

My friends already know: What I see, I express in photographs. Same goes for Tel Aviv, my hometown.


To me, Tel Aviv, provides endless opportunities to take beautiful photos. Even though it is not a beautiful city in the architectural sense, it combines old and new, the beach and urban life, the sea and the sky. In this installment I try to transmit the splendor of this special city.

The first photo is one of my favorites as it shows how a wet road and an old structure

on the promenade turn into something totally different


This picture was taken on the beach during a storm. The clouds closing in bring winter with them and at the corner stands the lifeguard's hut, a remnant of the summer. On a day like this, does memory turn into yearning?



An especially hazy day that brightened the picture


A look at what's between the sky and the water. The lens caught the merger of two of the Azrieli towers


On the southern beach of Tel Aviv, there's a small pond that flows into the sea. While waiting for a good reflection, a dog stopped by to check me out



Shot at 5 am. In my mind's eyes I pictured the two chairs looking at the horizon, the water was flowing and the clouds stood still


This photo was also taken during a special time of the day – sunset. Tel Aviv overlooking Jaffa through the rocks.
