Bridge Over Blue

Jaser A-Zarka – The Arabic name ‘Bridge over blue’ originates in an old bridge over the local river ‘Alligator’s River’ (these are long gone).
The poorest village in Israel is a neighbor to one of the country’s wealthiest towns – Caesarea. The ancestors of village’s residents were Bedouin slaves who found a home in this seaside village. The village is all pastel like colored with magnificent textures and distinguished characters. One of the most photographically inspiring parts of Jaser is the Fisherman’s village (see image). This short line of shacks is a reminder to a lifestyle long gone from our Mediterranean coastline.
