Sweet Sixteen

5 Mishmarot St.

A bridge-crosssing journey on route 16. For years I have seen route 16 service taxies passing through Tel Aviv, but I did not quite know what their final destination was. I chose to focus on drivers who make the journey time after time and already know the nuances of traffic, the passengers, and themselves. I accompanied dozens of trips back and forth, talked to the drivers and heard moving stories – some of which I also managed to capture on video.
