The Door of Hope is a shelter for prostitutes, drug addicts and homeless women in the old Central Bus Station of South Tel-Aviv, Israel. The shelter is a sanctuary where the women can find a respite from the streets. This series was made in 2008 over a period of six months. It is shot in black and white and hand-tinted as a way to look into their eyes, an action many avoid on the streets. The series is dedicated to a beautiful woman who is no longer with us.
