Next year in Jerusalem


– holds the Passover saying. But from the images of Jerusalem we can have a foretasting already at this Easter, thanks to one-way who published a selection from E. Schiller’s The First Photographs of Jerusalem and the Holy Land.

The Via Dolorosa

The book was published several decades ago, and by now it has become a much sought-after rarity for collectors. Nevertheless, we hope to lay hands soon on the other album by Schiller, the two-volume The first photographs of Jerusalem, which contains a much more abundant early visual material on the city. We will give an ample selection of it in our series “Images of the East”.
