PHOTO ESSAY: Jerusalem in lockdown

How that city sits, isolated, where it had been full of people

I’m happy and proud to share my photography with the readers of The Times of Israel —¬† photography has been my profession and my passion for more than 30 years.

I have documented horrific scenes of terrorism and pastoral scenes of nature; angry demonstrations to well-mannered political summits; the 2006 Second Lebanon War, rocket attacks from Gaza on southern Israel; politics and different news items; but what I most enjoy is the magic of capturing what I see as special moments of daily life.

Now, in my first blog post and because of the special times, I’d like to show you a few scenes of the daily life in Jerusalem during the coronavirus crisis, instead of just one picture.

From the silence in the empty streets of the capital to the shouting of the members of an extreme Orthodox faction against the police forces struggling against the violation of the Health Ministry rules in the Mea Shearim neighborhood.

Hoping this crisis finishes soon wish all of you good health.

From the silence in the empty streets of the capital…

…to the shouting of the members of an extreme Orthodox faction against the police forces struggling against the violation of the Health Ministry rules in the Mea Shearim neighborhood….
