July 12 – August 21, 2011
In 2008, photographer David Bergholz and his wife spent two weeks in Tel Aviv. He had expected to only shoot pictures for personal use, but day by day he became increasingly intrigued with the city and its environs and wound up with more than 700 images. He saw Tel Aviv as a vibrant metropolis of great energy and quirky beauty, with contrasts of wealth and decay and a distinct sketchiness in its infrastructure that is both charming and a little bit scary.
David Bergholz is a fine arts photographer who has exhibited his images and conceptual work at SPACES, Heights Arts, Murray Hill Galleries, LLC (NEO+1), The Cleveland Botanical Garden, the John F. Seiberling Gallery in the Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation Area, the Massillon Museum, the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, University Hospitals, Firelands Association for the Visual Arts in Oberlin and the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh.
