A. Soskin – Tel Aviv Photographer

Avraham Soskin was born in Russia in 1884 and immigrated to Israel in 1905. He became renowned as the quintessential 'Tel Aviv Photographer', and was famous for capturing the historic housing lottery in Ahuzat Bayit (the genesis of the city). His photographs accompany the construction and development of the first Hebrew city, and are a key source of information on Tel Aviv's first days, its streets, and its residents, as well as important events in its history.
