A Vision of Tranquility

Capturing Tel Aviv at its best, photographer Mario Troiani offers us a brief respite from the madness.

As a photojournalist, Mario Troiani is no stranger to conflict zones. A recent transplant to Tel Aviv, he has captured the city in days of relative calm and of raucous celebration which he shares on his Facebook page, Italian in Tel Aviv.

At this troubled time, Troiani offers a brief respite from the madness surrounding us by posting images of the small pockets of tranquility that are still to be found, like this white hibiscus facing the summer sun in one of the many gardens that dot the White City…


Knotted aerial roots tightly embracing the trunk of a ficus tree that lines a Tel Aviv boulevard…


Light glances off the stone walkway at the end of Ben Gurion Boulevard, leading to the beach…


The beach and its people, as seen from Old Jaffa…


Lovers in love…


Sunset and a wish for more peaceful times.
