"Yigal Gawze's photographs capture the abstraction, the simplicity and the optimism of early modernism in Tel Aviv. He distils the essence of the Bauhaus to bring it alive in a modern city and concentrates on the subtle effects of natural light upon architecture, a technique that the masters of the modern movement themselves applauded." Nonie Niesewand, design editor & author

The fragment - an essential part of the structure which carries within it the genetic code of the whole, is in the core of this visual inquiry depicting Tel Aviv's White City. The encounter between a building style originating in Europe and the Mediterranean glare, is highlighted by the colour photography. While paying homage to the Bauhaus spi rit and the avant - garde photographers of the 1920s, it is also a tribute to past ideals and present renewal, enhancing the current relevance of the Modern Movement in an exceptional urban setting. The images add up to create a portrait of a place by reveal ing the poetic essence of its architecture and the role light takes in shaping it.
