Launched in 2009, this show presents a selection of works by the Israeli photographer Refael Bayer dedicated to Tel Aviv’s centennial. Magic moments captured by Bayer’s photography reflect the special character and spirit of the city, its architecture, its street life, and most of all, its people.

Born in Israel in 1964, Refael Bayer graduated from the Kiryat Ono College of Photography in 1992. For eight years he worked in industrial photography, but all the while felt that his true vocation was art. He left his work in the advertising industry in 1999, and completely dedicated himself to the art of photography. Refael Bayer lives and works in Tel  Aviv.
