At first glance, it is easy to understand why Haim Tor and the world of modeling seem like a good fit. Tor is the quintessential rising star in the world of men’s fashion. His boyish good looks, which he owes to piercing green eyes, high cheekbones, perfectly symmetrical facial features, and coiffed-back hair, evoke memories of a young Johnny Depp. Complementing this attractive exterior are a mature calm, a cool charisma, and a wealth of emotional and philosophical self-awareness that is rare for a 23-year-old in any profession, let alone the seemingly superficial world of modeling.The news media in Israel are beginning to catch on to this young man whose face has graced billboards of well-known fashion brands like Tamnoon and Bagir, mainly because of the unlikely path he took to get here.
