Wolberg is both a photojournalist and an artist photographer. He has created a brilliant body of work detailing orthodox ritual in Jerusalem, and Purim scenes in Hebron. In addition he has photographed the other side of life in Israel at gay clubs and scenes of street revelry. He takes you with the Israeli army into Palestinian homes and combat zones. His images of Palestinian uprisings are riveting. His astounding talent for choosing the perfect moment to shoot and for creating the most arresting compositions make Pavel Wolberg one of the giants of contemporary photography.
