Light of Jerusalem
"Jerusalem is a port city on the shore of eternity." Yehuda Amichai Moving, dreamlike excerpts from Nobel Prize winning writer and humanitarian Elie Wiesel's acclaimed 1968 novel 'A Beggar in Jerusalem' introduce this latest volume in Assouline's 'The Light of' collection. Showcasing Jean-Michel Berts's textural black-and-white photographs taken on the cusp of daybreak, 'The Light of Jerusalem' captures the poignancy and the poetry of this ancient crossroads. Modern Jerusalem is a multicultural metropolis, a complex layering of the historic and the timeless; this marvellous volume expresses the power and mystery of Jerusalem's monuments, streets, gardens, and panoramas. Introduction excerpted from 'A Beggar in Jerusalem' by Elie Wiesel. AUTHOR: Jean-Michel Berts has been a photographer since age sixteen.
