Jerusalem Express (3 of 3): A Tale of Two Cities

With clashes related to strained Israeli-Palestinian relations dominating the headlines, it’s sometimes easy to forget that Jerusalem is also a place where everyday people of all backgrounds and faiths live, shop, play and work just like many other major cities around the world. I took to the neighborhood streets away from the tourist-filled Old City to document some of the ordinary interactions that take place in a community at the center of extraordinary international scrutiny.
