In April 2010 I spent a week wandering around Jerusalem, from the Palestinian neighborhoods of east Jerusalem to the ultra-Orthodox enclave of Mea Sharim. The tension in Jerusalem is palpable everywhere you go; rules, social norms and identity politics often dictate who you speak to and what you see. Jerusalem Journal is a view of the city that both addresses these constraints and actively ignores them. It is a letter to Jerusalem from a newcomer and outsider, open to exploring a place and it’s people.
