Founded in 2012, Telavivian started out as an online magazine covering the cultural scene of Tel Aviv. Featuring stories about the local architecture, art, fashion, design, music and food scenes, we have aimed to showcase the people, places and projects that make Tel Aviv what it is. Now, we are taking this conversation to the next level as we launch the first edition of Telavivian Journal.

What defines our city? What are the shapes, sounds and smells that tell its story? Who are the ones making the waves?

We asked nine Tel Avivian writers to give us their perspective, and have chosen 70 photos by local and visiting photographers. Finally, we asked photographer Dor Kedmi to capture moments in some of our favorite restaurants, shops, cafes, hotels and bars. With the help of these words and visuals we wish to get closer to a conclusion.

Tel Aviv is a young city, in the midst of shaping its identity. We believe now is the perfect time to document its current state, and capture it as it takes on new directions.

Our dream is that Telavivian Journal will be an annual publication, and that in 10 years we will be able to see Tel Aviv develop throughout the years with each edition.

We are happy that you are joining the ride.

Anna Kopito, Founder of Telavivian
