Jerusalem; the sacred hub of the Abrahamic religions and one of the oldest cities in the world. A living mosaic of Babylonian, medieval and Ottoman architecture and the best opportunity you will have to see 360 degrees of the living historical panorama.
Make your photographic pilgrimage here with Frui to discover the narrow passages of the old city where these cultures meet and see how such a deeply woven history can make for unique and fascinating images.
Director James has personal contacts that live in this great city, giving us unfettered access and unique queue jumping abilities. We are also planning to have a talk with Skynews camera-man and war zone correspondent Jake Britton on how to take meaningful images in challenging situations.
On this five day trip, we ‘ll start at the coastal town of Jaffa, explore the world-famous and the less well known among Jerusalem’s sights, and journey into the desert to see the Mar Saba monastery. There’s Mahane Yehuda and Etz Chayim street markets, Temple Mount, Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Western Wall. The images you bring home will ring with church bells, the refrain of the call to prayer and the strain of the shofar.
