Israel as seen through the eyes of David Rubinger, the laureate of the Israeli Prize for Photography, eyewitness to the dramatic events that took place in Israel throughout its existence.

David was awarded the Israel Prize for his services to the media in 1977. This is the highest accolade that can be received in Israel. He also has a permanent collection of his photographs in the Knesset, Israel’s Parliament. 

David Rubinger’s singular and perceptive way of viewing the world around him has resulted in an historic archive of immeasurable value for future generations.
