A photographer in love with Jerusalem
In a book published ahead of Israel's 67th Independence Day, Sharon Gabay presents amazing photos of the Israeli capital alongside Bible verses.
"It's like looking at a woman you are in love with and seeing no flaws," photographer Sharon Gabay describes Jerusalem.

 

 

Ahead of Israel's 67th Independence Day, Gabay published a book of photographs he has been working on for three years, in which he documents the Israeli capital from every possible angle, with unique image processing.

In an interview to the Ynet studio, he says he never stages the photos. "Some of the pictures were even taken while travelling," he says. "I just take the camera and look for situations."

 

Each picture in the book, which is called "Yerushalayim – Thisa Kabin Shel Yofi" (Jerusalem – Nine Portions of Beauty), includes a Bible verse.

 

"I'm very connected to tradition, to Judaism, to the people of Israel and to the Land of Israel. I am a real Zionist," Gabay says, explaining that the verses were matched on different levels. "There are simpler levels, about a journey and a picture of the train, and there are slightly deeper levels. Whoever delves into Judaism will understand."
