Photography Competition / Hurbanism – Man's representation in the urban space
Bat Yam, Israel
The HURBANISM photography contest will be held as part of our summer events and to the occasion of the reopening of the Bat Yam beach Gallery in collaboration with photographers Ziv Koren and Roie Galitz.
We are conducting a photography contest that deals with human contact and representation in the urban space and invite you hereby to send pictures documenting those components of the human fabric that generate a continuous occurrence and reflect the very spirit of the term HURBANISM.

Surrealism and pluralism, winter and summer, and then summer and winter again the tumult of the city; time never stops. The city breathes, it is destroyed and then rebuilt, it never rests. And its people – they too, just like the city itself, tumultuous and agitated; they have rhythm, they have a way, they have time and place in the city. They love it and respect it; they decorate and nurture it. Sometimes they kick it, yet the city is remains in place. It neither stops nor does it escape. It is theirs – they merge into one entity that keeps moving on…
For this competition we would like to get images which reflect the spirit of Hurbanism, those components of the human texture, which create an ongoing happening, and reveal the magic hidden in the eye of the lens.
