Israeli photographer Ziv Ish's series feature portraits of people “living on the fringes” of Israeli society, including prostitutes, drug addicts, and transsexuals. The images are raw, fascinating, and sometimes hard to view.
“There are areas in [Tel Aviv] that drug addicts or many other extreme communities are very easy to find. I used to visit there almost every day and got to know every corner of the streets,” Ish said. “Very rough areas with an environment that is very hard to deal with, especially if you are really getting into the veins of the place and getting to know the people.”
