3 Chasidim Leap Off Masada

I have recently come across British-born photographer Toby Cohen (his homage to Maurycy Gottlieb’s 1878 painting “Day of Atonement” is how I first learnt of his work). He left a lucrative career as a paparazzi to move to Tel Aviv to become an artist and photographer. He is better known for the series of photographs of female Israeli soldiers, but his other collections I find much more distinctive and unique.

There’s an interesting interview with him in Haaretz (English edition).
