During nine months I lived in Tel Aviv. During this period I met four young Jewish women who were born in the USA. They had all decided, at the age of 18, to go to Israel to do the military service. After completing the required two years of service, they decided to stay and live in this idyllic Middle Eastern city.
José Pedro Cortes
The images of four women are interspersed with landscape and detailed views of the city - old cars, over grown palm trees, porticos, puddles of water.. Mixing color and black&white, hard flash and natural light, this book creates a sense of ambiguity placing the viewer in between the intimacy of the portraits and the deserted city of Tel Aviv.
