Israel - The Holy Land.


by Markus Gebauer

I visited Israel in January 2013 for the first time. The official reason for my travel was a job in Tel Aviv but my personal focus was a town I have dreamed from since my grannies good night bible stories: Jerusalem!

The old city is the pounding heart of Jerusalem both historically and spiritually. It is divided into four uneven quarters each of it with its own spiritual atmosphere, architecture and sites of key religious importance.

The story I want to tell is about the compromise and variety of four religions living together a city. I focused on the different religious behaviours but also tried to capture the monumental cityscape of Jerusalem and its daily live apart from religion.
