Old City Workshops

In the old city of Jerusalem you can find a lot of small workshops. One meets welders, shoe-makers, carpenters, tailors, washers, bakers, fabricants of sweets, butchers, printers, gold smiths and many more. They all live and work in a tight community. As a result of spending long days with my camera in the old city I had the possibility to get to know the manufacturers and to study their craftsmanship. Getting to know both craftsmen and their work, gives the portraits their specific atmosphere.
