Jerusalem || September 2016- March 2017

Jerusalem, origin of the christian religion and center of the world holds thousands years of history and divinity. So do believe the pilgrims, that come to the holy land every year and try to get closer to their religious identity. The Christian community in Jerusalem exists as a lively microcosm only through the pilgrims and clergyman, who decided to dedicate their life for this cause. 

Jerusalem has 13 different main denominations, all in several garments and all with different origins from all over the christian world, but mainly around the middle east. 2017, 500 years after Martin Luther divided the church with his theories, I decided to document the religious leaders of all churches in Jerusalem
and to show the daily life of the pilgrims in Jerusalem.
