Moon City


During the years I have lived in Tel-Aviv I used to go out early on Saturday mornings, while the city was still asleep after  the wild Friday night parties. Equipped with my digital camera, the first one I ever owned, I used to photograph various buildings and architectural details that I found interesting. Later on, while sifting through the result, I used to be quite disappointed. The photos never came out as quite as vivid and interesting as I had wanted.

Then it dawned on me that I could use Photoshop in order to pick out the most interesting bits, leaving out all the rest. The result was an interesting mix of styles and eras in the city’s architectural history. Old Bauhaus buildings collided with  modern skyscrapers, creating a wild and imaginary city scape. Adding a misty background and a hazy moon completed the composition.

Today this style of photo collage became rather common among young and adventurous design students, but back then in the year 2000 it was quite avant guard. You are invited to tour this blog further, a few more examples of this style are available somewhere.
