David Rubinger

David Rubinger (29 June 1924, Vienna, Austria - 2 March 2017, Jerusalem) was an Israeli photographer and legend in and of himself. His instantly-recognizable photo of three Israeli paratroopers after the recapture of the Western Wall in the Six-Day War has become a defining image in the history of Israel and the Jewish nation. Shimon Peres called Rubinger “the photographer of the Nation-in-the-Making”. A Time–Life’s primary photographer for the region, Rubinger was also awarded the” Israel Prize” in communications — photography, becoming the first photographer to receive the award. David is not just a legend. David is part of history, the history of the State of Israel, from its inception till today, as he captures the heart and history of the people of Israel through his eyes and camera lenses. Visiting David’s home in the heart of the Holy City can best be described as “going back in time”. David’s home is a combination of a museum, a shrine, and an archive of the past 60 years of the Holy Land. The walls are completely covered – with almost no space in between – by photos he has taken documenting some of the most defining events in the short history of the State of Israel, as well as no-less-powerful images of the important yet “simple” people who are interwoven into this rich fabric of history.
