Mea Sharim is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Jerusalem and is where many ultra-Orthodox Jewish people live. I went to photograph there one afternoon with just my 35mm and 50mm lenses and found that with the streets crowded I blended in quite naturally. The following morning I returned early and I felt a bit more obtrusive, but spoke with a couple of gentlemen in the neighborhood and let them know that I’d show due respect. It’s a fascinating neighborhood and I’d certainly like to return for a more in-depth look. As you scroll through it will give you a glimpse into the life of the neighborhood.
