Jerusalem, one city, many worlds
Jerusalem is sacred to Jews, Muslims and Christians. In the narrow streets of the old city of Jerusalem, it is not individual persons who cross each other but representatives of communities who display the signs of their identities. Simply being someone is impossible.
Exchanges between members of different communities are avoided as much as possible. A smile would pass for a madness or a provocation. The tension is contained, but intense. Everyone is locked in their certainties, in their community, in their world.
This is precisely what I wanted to convey in this series : the diversity of the worlds that meet each other and ignore each other in this tiny space of the city of Jerusalem.
