The spirit of South Tel Aviv: Shapira neighborhood

After spending a day between the beach and Mike’s Place, or a night at the hippest bars in the Kerem, it’s easy to forget that Tel Aviv is not only city center. Just beyond the streets of Rothschild and Florentin lies Shapira, one of the most diverse neighborhood in South Tel Aviv. Shapira is home to people of many ages, races, and religions, which contributes to its array of cultural offerings and strong social consciousness. Whether you’re visiting a collaborative art gallery, seeking authentic Chinese or Bukharian food, or need some green space, it’s all a few minutes walk away. Next time you’re on your way to the New Central Bus Station or want a respite from Florentin, stop by!

In Character: Lear Landau

In the photo lab of one of Tel Aviv’s favorite photography spots, HaPhoto, we spoke to the heir, Lear Landau about his experiences. How many years have you worked professionally in photography? It’s a tricky question. I’ve been doing this since I was about six years old, because HaPhoto is my parent’s lab. How did your family get involved with photography? In ‘86, my dad, his dad and my mom bought an existing photo lab, and we’ve been at the current location for 13 years. Growing up, I hated that HaPhoto was chosen as a career for me; as a teenager, I really didn’t want to come here. It took me years to realize how awesome this place is – for everyone and for myself. It allows me to do something I am sincerely good at. What’s your speciality at the shop? I’m used to seeing colors, color corrections and color adjustments that are needed. When you’re six years old, printing hundreds of pictures a day, it grows on you. Many people can do very good color adjustments, but I do them very, very quickly. These days, people don’t appreciate a quick and good job – something that specialists are able to do. You know, those old workshops – camera, bikes, woodworking, etc – with 50-to-70 year-olds behind the counter who tend to charge less, work quicker and don’t want you to argue with them because they know what they’re doing? Nowadays, people are looking for a near-perfect job that takes way too long. So, you get young folks who just got into the profession and just wank over ever
