Photography: Picture a wall

Any photographer will tell you that if you want to capture the spirit of a place, and the transient dynamics of everyday outdoor life, you have to set out with a good deal of patience.

In case it had escaped anyone’s attention over the last 12 months, 2017 marked the 50th anniversary of the Six Day War and, hence, the reunification of Jerusalem. That, inter alia, meant that Jews from all over the world had free access to the Western Wall.

David and Sraya Diamant are particularly happy about that turn of events for a variety of reasons, including the fact that it offers them a fertile and dynamic substratum for their creative pursuits. Some of the results of the above are currently on display in the Old City, at the Cardo and in the Herodian Quarter, as the “Jubilee at the Kotel” exhibition.
