The Holy City Like You’ve Never Seen It Before
The current issue of TIME Magazine is focusing on the growing population of the ultra-Orthodox community in Jerusalem and the way it changes the city. They sent Israeli photographer and Pulitzer Prize winner, Oded Balilty, to photograph ultra-Orthodox families and neighborhoods, and the results are really amazing. It looks like the images were taken in a different universe or time.
Jerusalem is my home, and where I lived most of my life, and even for me the images look surreal. Jerusalem looks nothing like the images below, and if you’ve been there you know that. Really amazing to get a sneak peak inside those ultra-Orthodox communities and get a sense of how they live their (very different) lives. Jerusalem like you never seen it before.
