Igal Stulbach created this series while strolling the streets of Tel Aviv in the late autumn nights. This is the preferred time for a night bird like him. He tries to reveal the magic that lies over the city at night - streets and moving objects look very different than during the day. People become ghosts, some are funny and happy, and others are sad and lonely. Shadows hide secrets, movements are blurred. During the day the city is noisy and chaotic, at night mysterious and dreamy - so he likes it and wants to share this with the viewer.

“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”

“It was the possibility of darkness that made the day seem so bright.”
Alley by Igal Stulbach
“I love the silent hour of night, For blissful dreams may then arise, Revealing to my charmed sight What may not bless my waking eyes.”
