Israeli photographer Natan Dvir‘s first exhibition at Anastasia Photo is currently on view through May 19th. Dvir began this series, “Coming Soon,” in response to his surprise, as a foreigner, at the “numerous ads and billboards covering New York City in a kaleidoscopic commercial net.” By juxtaposing giant billboards against seemingly miniature humans in everyday street scenes, he explores our relationship with branded city centers and the commercial environment we live in.
