Over many years, he has catalogued over 5,000 Tel Aviv street shots from the collection he has taken at his second home. Single pictures cannot express the character of Tel Aviv on their own. Only after viewing multiple pictures is one left with an impression of the signum of the age. Thus, a composition is born that captures the spirit of Tel Aviv in ways that are thematically critical, dark, and bizarre, yet often humorous and ironic as well. It is an invaluable collection of Matthias Bünzli’s photographs that through a photographically–aesthetic expression of timelessness reveals impacting accounts of the last few years he has spent in Tel Aviv. The following assortment of images captures the zeitgeist of Tel Aviv in a way that unmistakably depicts the photographer’s emotions he felt while peering through the lens. The viewer may occasionally raise an eyebrow at what lies in front of him or her, but never will he or she turn away from such an unvarnished portrayal to Tel Aviv. The style of photography is timeless. It works with form and geometry as well as with similarities, extremes, and contrasts.
