Tel Aviv Dance by gilad Tel Aviv Dance by gilad

With the wind pushing her at the back
feeling like Alfonsina Storni going out to sea
Dancing goodbye to the city shutters and noise
Welcoming the powerful and silent spirits of the end


****

This shot was taken for an advertising campaign that the ministry of tourism is doing to the US market.
I don't do commercial work so I asked to know the concept in advance. The Idea was to do something different and that's why I was exited with working on this. Differnt photography and different concept.

The idea of the campaign is to focus on Israel through the people, and let the Israel landscape is only the background. The campaign will show still photos (taken by me) of 6-8 people that have an interesting story about them. They could have a story of something they were involved in, or an interesting hobby.
This woman is Maya and she was a dancer in the "Bat Sheva" dancing group for 8 years, and now she is finishing her veterinarian studies. I had a blast taking her shots, and she were dancing especially for me (and that's every man's fantasy right there)

The campaign is being done by “Christy MacDougall Mitchell Bodden” and will probably be released later this year to the US market, so this is a sneak preview. I will show you more of it when it will be released to the press.

We are all very exited with it.

oh so you are the one who took this photo... I've seen it before when doing some research for my project about improving Israel's image in Canada. It was for a campaign by the ministry of tourism, right?
I really love this photo, I've always wondered who took it and just found out now while browsing DA.
