A visit to Harlington Hotel Ashkelon

Built by the prolific Rechter Architects, the Harlington Hotel (previously Holiday Inn Ashkelon) is perhaps one of the most underrated buildings from the firm’s oeuvre. Appearing at the end of the boardwalk of the coastal city of Ashkelon, the futuristic domed edifice stands in sharp contrast to the generic buildings that typify the surrounding urban landscape. The budget hotel makes up for its lack of stars in ingenious creation, from its rounded half-moon exteriors to its curving ramps and internal courtyards. The decaying relic of late-90s Israeli modernism is situated on the edge of a cliff overlooking the beach and Mediterranean Sea.

A view of the 8 House designed by architect Bjarke Ingels in Ørestad, Copenhagen

The 8 House is located all the way south, at the last stop of M1 metro line in Ørestad, a suburb of Copenhagen. Beyond, nothing but high grass and cloudy skies, moving slightly in the wind, cinemagraph like.

The playful residential buildings’ individual units are connected by a long, external figure 8 shaped access ramp, resembling a slot car race track. It might as well be a setting for a futuristic sci-fi movie, with its occupants portraying members of a stranded Hygge tribe.

Ørestad is a planned city area which until today has still not reached even half of its’ capacity. The emptiness is clearly present. It seems like a very serene, calm dwelling environment. Maybe that is exactly what its creator,... Read More

An escape to Mexico

“My trip to Mexico was a hurricane of emotions, I went during not a very good time, running away from a big change. I took my bags and spent Christmas in the Riviera Maya. While I was there I didn’t enjoy myself: I was traveling away from my problems but instead I took them with me. I found the excitement when developing my photos; I saw a turn of heart without it being premeditated: everything was happiness and color, everything was based on light. Even though I neither wanted or felt it,  I ended up capturing in these photos my essence, there is always light that asks to come out screaming. This project is not... Read More

A few days in Hong Kong

“Upon arriving in Hong Kong I was shocked by how much nature there is in this densely populated urban territory.  I tried to spend a lot of time in these nature spots and the photos I have taken show these areas while contrasting them with the skyscraper studded skyline,” remarked photographer Julia Laird. Photos taken in Lamma Island, the dragon’s back, Sham Shui Po and Central Hong Kong.

A trip to The Balkans

“I had come to Yugoslavia because I knew that the past has made the present, and I wanted to see how the process works.” Rebecca West, Black Lamb and Grey Falcon (1940).

Historically, the Balkan peninsula has been a hotbed of political upheaval. It has been traditionally seen as the buffer between the East and the West, and, as a result, it has been conquered, re-conquered and influenced by the Ottomans, the Hapsburgs, and the Russians. (To date, Serbian municipalities in Kosovo sport banners of President Vladamir Putin.) The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo jump-started WWI. Following WWII, communist leader Josip Broz Tito united the countries of the former Yugoslavia until his... Read More

A trip to Morocco

It’s was a four hour hike through the Rif Mountains before we met with the unfamiliar pitter-patter, a drumming vibration. Our hash-trail tour guide, who was well ahead, waved his hand to signal us to his families hash-making facility, a humble home-workspace built into the landscape. His mother takes a break from filtering kif (a process that involves beating a mesh-wrapped bundle of marijuana) to greet us. Her son quickly fills her position while she hosts. Joints are rolled for sampling and lunch is served. Hash tourism is one of the many hustles in Morocco. On a slow trip through the country, I documented the spirit of the every day hustle in Morocco, a theme that... Read More

A visit to Dani Karavan’s Monument to the Negev Brigade, Israel

Built in the 60s by architect DANI KARAVAN, The Monument to the Negev Brigade is one of the first examples of public art in Israel and a precursor to the global land art movement. It honors the 324 fallen soldiers of the Palmach Negev Brigade who protected secluded desert communities and guarded Israel’s vast Southern borders in 1948 during the War of Independence. Karavan’s massive and interactive sculptural work overlooks Be’ersheva, a city rising from the desert. The monument has become an iconic part of the city’s landscape.

A trip through the Nile and the Desert, Egypt

The Egyptian tour guide told me this is a “once in a lifetime” trip. That made me think about the passing of time and death. Pharaohs built their tombs in the form of Pyramids when they were alive. The enigma is still there, it follows you while traveling on a cruise trough the Nile from Luxor to Aswan or spending hours in a van heading to Abu Simbe through the desert. I hurried to take pictures of every temple, disappeared civilizations and statues of gods sitting on stones of muted power.

A visit to the war Memorial of Dražgoše, Slovenia

Designed by Stojan Batič, Boris Kobe and Ive Šubic in 1977, the memorial is a great example of Brutalist architecture dedicated to fallen fighters and victims of fascism in the battle of Dražgoše, Slovenia.
