This is a portrait of my brother Albert Benvinisti, who now lives in Israel. The photo was taken in Plovdiv in the 1940s. My brother used to work in a shop when he was young and in 1948 he left for Israel. He fixed his family well there, and he deals in machine production. Albert got married in Bulgaria, he lived in Israel for 13 years and he came back again after that. He is a Bulgarian citizen now and lives in Israel most of the time, but because of his work he travels to Bulgaria very often and stays here for a couple of months. He earns more money in Israel. He used to work as a truck driver in Bulgaria, gathering leftovers from restaurants and taking them to some farm.
