If Tomer Ifrah’s envy-inducing portfolio is anything to go by, the photographer must be running out of clean pages in his passport. Originally from Israel, recent projects have taken Tomer to Brazil, Ethiopia, Brazil and Azerbaijan, where he has found himself inside a women’s prison, documenting Olympics security, attending a Uman pilgrimage, election week in Moscow, the run up to the Sochi olympics, the aftermath of Holi festiva. As well as behind the scenes of Sao Paolo fashion week for a list of clients including The New Yorker, The Guardian, Financial Times Weekend magazine, British Journal Of Photography, Lens Culture, Business Insider, The Calvert Journal, Esquire (Russia) And CNN. Tomer tells us he is “currently working on different projects in eastern and central Europe”, and that he can currently be found “in Astana, Kazakhstan, working on a one-month project”.
Another of Tomer’s recent projects took him beneath the snow-packed pavements of Moscow to the city’s glamorous underground system, where, for three months, he documented the comings and goings of the city’s commuters. “The artfully designed stations, many first built in the 1930s, are filled with symbols of the nation’s history,” Tomer explains. “More than seven million commuters pass through the Moscow metro every day, one of the few places in the city which brings together people from all parts of the society.”
The project, titled Moscow Metro, will be a part of a book Tomer is currently working on, which the photographer tells us, “will explore everyday life in metro stations of three Post-Soviet countries”. It is due to be published by KAHL Editions in 2018.
