About this title

Synopsis:

Jerusalem (which is called Yerushalayim in Hebrew) is a holy city to Jews, Christians, and Muslims as well as the capital of the modern State of Israel. Known as the “city of gold” due to the hue of its ancient walls at sunrise and sunset, it is a fascinatingly unique place where history rubs shoulders with modernity and where picturesque old neighborhoods nestle against glistening office towers and high-rise apartment buildings. It is one of those places that must be seen to be believed.

Jerusalem Always introduces this fascinating city and its colorful mosaic of inhabitants to readers. A beautifully designed, lavishly illustrated album featuring over 140 full-color images, this large-format book is a moving journey into the heart of the Israeli capital and the daily life and festivals of its people and pilgrims. Marcelo Bendahán’s photographs bring the awesome beauty of the city to life and offer revealing glimpses into various religions and cultures that thrive in Jerusalem. Many of the photographs were taken with a panoramic camera that allowed Bendahán to capture the vigor and diversity of Jerusalem’s streets and alleys. The photographs are accompanied by an insightful, informative, and entertaining text that will engage the reader.

Jerusalem Always begins by focusing on the religious sites that have attracted pilgrims for centuries and the modern city that has developed around them. The album then introduces readers to the city’s diverse population, from dancers and clowns to merchants and models, from boys studying the holy scriptures and artisans at work to children at play and pilgrims on parade.

Bilingual Text: English and Spanish

About the Author:

Marcelo Bendahán began his professional career in 1995, after graduating from the School of Communications in Madrid. Approached by the Performing Library in London, he spent five years taking pictures of the fascinating musical scene in that vibrant city. His work has appeared in the Daily Telegraph, the Evening Standard, Gala Magazine, the Sunday Times, OK!, and BBC Music. In 2004 he founded Maestro Books and published his first book, Amsterdam Always, a captivating photo book that portrays the city, as it has never been seen before. He followed that with 'Melilla Viva', a unique insight of this Spanish enclave in North Africa that has belonged to Spain for over 500 years. 'Jerusalem Always', a moving journey into the heart of the capital of Israel was published in 2009, and he is presently working on a photo essay book on the Carnival celebrations held around the globe. Bendahán lives in Amsterdam with his family.

She currently resides in Tel Aviv and is the editor of Eretz Magazine, a bimonthly magazine which focuses on the history and culture of the Land of Israel.
