City of David (WIP)

In my ongoing project about Ir David (City of David), I trace how politics structure space and time in this controversial multi-layered archeological site turned tourist attraction. Located at the foothills of Jerusalem’s old city, and the outskirts of the Palestinian village of Silwan, this site is most commonly experienced through tours, which evoke in visitors an expanded, yet continuous sense of time from the biblical era to modern Israel. I photographed all vantage points available for tourists and am currently reconstructing them from a non-linear perspective which includes layers of archeology, tourism, and nationalism.
