Arlozorov Tent City

A year after the social protest of 2011, in the summer of 2012, the protesters tried to make a comeback, but not so very successfully. Still, the Mayor of Tel Aviv approved them to make a tent city in a park by the Arlozorov train station, thinking it won't take long until they leave the place.

In the end, only homeless people stayed in the tent city, having no other place to go. Even though Tel Aviv municipality authorities try to make their life harder with various excuses, they stayed there for many months. Some treated their tent as a temporary shelter, some treat it like a home.

This series tries to give faces and names to the people of Arlozorov Tent City in Tel Aviv, a place where hundreds of thousands of people pass by each day and see only tents and plastic sheets.
