Fictitious Tel Aviv by artist and photographer Victor Enrich via Architizer

Enrich’s work lies somewhere between rendering and illustration, awash in a heavy dose of magical realism. The images have the quality of documents brought back from a parallel universe as “proof” of its existence. According to Enrich, that alternate reality might actually be America: the Israeli-based artist writes that, “Among all the real cities analyzed, special mention goes to the American city, which plays a key role in my imagination because of the size and exoticism of their buildings and streets, and the huge presence of motorized routes of some magnitude. American TV series of the 80s became an important source of imaging.”
