David Rubinger has captured some of the most powerful images of his time. No one has done a better job of showing the history of Israel in all its glory and pain. The stories behind those photographs and the people he has met are utterly captivating, but one of the most fascinating and poignant is that of his own life. He was joined by Ruth Corman who co-wrote Rubinger’s memoir, Israel Through My Lens. The conversation was accompanied by some of his iconic photographs.
In his collection of essays Colin Shindler presents his very personal take on Israel, based on over 50 years of writing on the subject for The New York Times, The Jerusalem Post and the Guardian. This vivid and engaging ‘history’ speaks of Shindler’s deep understanding of the problems of the region.
