These portraits were specially created during Tel Aviv illustration week in collaboration with Abraham hostel.
A glimpse into the lives of four 'Abraham hostel' employees; three refugees and one immigrant, who share their story of arriving to Israel and their experiences of living here. Their stories are embodied in portraits that are based on the interviews we had with them. the goal of this project is to allow the refugees, even if for a brief moment, to feel like "superstars", while they expose the tough journey they took and continue to endure in their daily life.
