Yesterday and Today

Inspired by the exhibition: The Camera Man – Women and Men Photograph Jerusalem 1900-1950

The exhibition focuses on the major photographers who lived and worked in Jerusalem during the first half of the twentieth century. Over the years the face of Jerusalem has changed greatly, sometimes even dramatically. You can see the changes in the city in these photos  – images from the past that reveal different chapters in the growth of the city side by side with images of the city as we know it today
