You find these mannequins in markets all over town, sporting the latest fashion in hijabs. I’ve wanted this shot
ever since my last visit here 2 years ago, and I think I might have gotten it this time.
Taking cues from American Relics, my photo essay on American History as a spectacle, I’ve been photographing a lot of tourism scenes in Jerusalem, from the same perspective and style. I only spent about 5 minutes with the scene, and this is as close as I came to getting the shot. It’s almost there, but not quite. Hopefully I’ll have time to revisit the scene and get the foreground background interaction I’m looking for.
