Today we mark Jerusalem Day with a selection of photos by still photographer Noam Chen.

Chen specializes in capturing urban subjects, portraits and nature using High Dynamic Range (HDR) technique for a super-saturated effect.

HDR brings out the textures, light, shadow and color of Jerusalem’s ancient stones…

Chen’s work has been featured in Israel and abroad, with a client list that includes National Geographic Magazine, Jerusalem’s Biblical Zoo and the Ministry of Tourism. He’s participated in in group and solo exhibitions in Israel and Paris with an extensive portfolio that can be viewed online.
