Words and Photography by Fabien Voileau

For his most recent photo series, he turned his observant gaze toward the streets of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. Speaking of the series, titled ‘Wave of Emotions’, Fabien said, “This series of photos illustrates my artistic journey between street photography and still life. Stolen portraits, suspended moments in torn and intertwined cities full of contradictions.”

All of the photos in this series were taken with a Leica Q2 camera and a Gobe 3 peak CPL filter. To read about what other gear Fabien uses on photography trips abroad, you can read his packing list.
