Photographer's Note

For over 3000 years, Jerusalem (Al-Quds in Arabic) has been, and still is, a spiritual centre, sacred to followers of the three great monotheistic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Straddling the conflict zone of Israel and the Palastinian Territories, cultural, political and religious turmoil bubbles not far below the surface.

I found myself gazing at a magnificent view of the Old City from a church at the Mount of Olives. The cross from the altar, superimposed beside the Dome of the Rock Mosque, created a beautifully unique juxtaposition.
