erusalem: Contrasts
of the old and new
Today's Jerusalem is a city of contrasts: one of old
and new buildings, side by side, and of people from dif-
ferent backgrounds and beliefs.
The capital of Israel, Jerusalem, is made up of the
old city, reclaimed by the Israelis from Jordan in the
1967 war, and the "new" city, the hotels and the banks,
which are located outside the wall surrounding the old
JERUSALEM MEANS city of peace, but it has been
the center of disputes for centures. As a holy city for
Jews, Christians and Moslems, Jerusalem has
weathered the conflicts between ethnic and religious
groups long before the bombs and fighter planes of the
current struggle.
These photographys were taken in and around the
old city. Here are the Jewish, Armenian, Arab, and
Christian quarters where people intermingle daily in
business and on the streets.
The picutres, clockwise from the top left are of: A
young bread seller who, lowered his head when he
realized his picture was about to be taken; an arched
walkway, common sight in the streets of the old city;
Mt. Zion where religious sites for Jews, Moslems and
Christians are located next to each other; Moslem
women on their way to the Jaffa Gate (the entrance to
the old city); the Arab market, a bustling scene of
bargaining, buying and selling; and an Arab seller
reiterating a price with his hands.
