In The PhotoHouse's footsteps tour

I've been working in The PhotoHouse for over 7 years, and in this tour I'll tell you all about this wonderful time capsule. The photo studio is the oldest photo shop in Tel Aviv, and has long since become a well-known and well-known institution. It began as one of the small photography shops scattered along Allenby Street, but over the years it became a well-known photography shop in Tel Aviv, through which tens of thousands of photographers passed, many of them famous. The family store still has the largest private photo archive in the country, which contains many founding moments from the history of the State of Israel, the Zionist enterprise and the development of the Jewish community. On the tour we will find out who Rudy and Miriam Wiesenstein were? How did they make their little shop a thing of the past? Were the known photographs spontaneous or inviting? How do you preserve negatives? And what is the future of a physical collection in the digital age?

All this and more in a fascinating tour that is a photographed and nostalgic historical journey, where we will get to know many photographs and the stories behind them, we will see what happened to the extensive photography industry that was in the country, And we will visit a photo studio where he is exposed to negatives, photographs and original cameras and props.
