Old, abandoned buildings 370.

Haifa has always been considered the “bride” of the north side of this country;
the shape of the city geographically resembles a fair lady with a long dress
that flows into the ocean. Nowadays, however Haifa is experiencing the
phenomenon of “urban decay” (also known as urban rot and urban blight) – the
process whereby a previously functioning city, or part of a city, falls into
disrepair and decrepitude.
In these pictures I wanted to represent the
idea of an urban spectrum, starting with old, abandoned buildings and areas at
one end, with modern buildings and public figures representing the other end of
this spectrum. Streaming vehicles connect the two sides of the city with an
imaginary thread of light.
