In this part of a series of photo reportages, the author shares photographs taken in South Tel Aviv, Israel, where large numbers of refugees have landed over the past decades.

Last summer I spent two months in the south part of Tel Aviv. I was teaching English to a family from Darfur who arrived in Israel over three years ago. I have not included photos of them in this series as I feel they are too personal. However, I spent a lot of time walking around the neighbourhood in which they live with Ahmed, a refugee from Darfur and someone who has volunteered much of his time working for an NGO that helps to make the life of other refugees easier. These photographs are not a statement about the life of refugees but rather a document of a changing neighbourhood.
