JERUSALEM (through the pin hole camera)

Most of the images in Jerusalem I did in 1984 which was just my beginning years using the Camera Obscure out doors, and the first time in a big city.
For me it was like a discovery, like going back in time tunnel to the bibalic city of Jerusalem with the pinhole cameras (the Camera Obscura technique) on the streets of Jerusalem.

Many new aspects which I didn’t have before while working in my studio came out. Movement of people and vehicle on the streets are disappear, shadow and light of buildings creating dramatic composition, the reaction of the public to the way I’m photographing and working in different and difficult condition sometime.

Finely it was a perfect marge between the subject and it’s atmosphere and the Camera Obscura technique. looking back on some images take me back also in history.
