Modern Skateism

Modern Skateism

For most of the Jews in Israel, Yom Kipor is a day when you ask god for forgiveness. There are many “Don’t” customs regarding this day, like don’t eat, don’t turn on electricity, don’t drive etc. For a whole 24 hours you won’t see a single car in many parts of the country. This very unique day makes Israel a huge playground for any kind of transport without an engine. Just try to imagine a big metropolis with no buses, cars, trains or trucks. Huge endless freeways, empty from vehicles, waiting to be skated on. I tried to capture some of those moments with a good friend and skater, Tamuz Rachman. Hope you like the result.
