By day, the Tel Aviv streets welcome a host of intriguing "characters": stylish locals with personalities to match strut down Rothschild Boulevard as if it was their own personal catwalk, and around every twist and turn, fashionistas are transforming the White City into isolated photo shoots. As the sun disappears into the Mediterranean, though, that's when the truly magnificent individuals come out to play. While most stare briefly or turn the other cheek, Emily Kor stops to take their photos. Admire her nightscapes.
Nightscape: Tanch Bolotnikov, Dental Assistant, Rokoko
Emily Kor sets out with a camera and a mission to capture the most interesting creatures of the Tel Aviv nightlife. Captured at 21:22 at Rokoko "I stopped to take her photo because I love her underground Instagram account" - Emily Kor Who are the people you photograph? My friends. When did you start taking photos? I started shooting in film a year ago thanks to a photographer friend who pushed me to document my life. Why film? Because unlike the digital world, you can't know how the picture will come out, so the moment is saved exactly as it is, there is also something magical about waiting for the photos to develop. How does your workplace take your unusual look? I wear a white lab coat.
