Jerusalem, Israel 2017

Jerusalem, an eternal city and always fought over by different ethnic groups: Jews, Arabs, Ethiopians, Yemenis, ... whose cohabitation is difficult, each strongly anchored to their own traditions, religious, historical, cultural, geographical. Individual cultures live in silent lament for the lack of legitimacy of their land.
The places where the photos were taken are the Mehane Yehuda market in the Orthodox Jewish quarter and the shouk of the Muslim quarter at the Damascus Gate (Old Town), theaters, in the common imaginary where manifestations of religious extremism express the maximum expression; but everyday life creates a "mixture of real, normal, destructive human relations of apparent divisions, which break down every social barrier and from which the city draws its strength.
