David Rubinger Exhibition

In May 2015, the internationally acclaimed photographer, David Rubinger, arrived in South Africa to promote an exhibition of some of his most famous photographs.

As Time magazine’s primary photographer for the Middle-East for over 50 years, Rubinger covered all of Israel’s wars. His famous photograph, of three Israeli paratroopers shortly after the recapture of the Western Wall in the Six-Day War, has become the defining image of that conflict.

Rubinger, who turned 91 in June 2015, had the unique distinction of being present at most of the epochal moments in the Middle –East during the latter half of the 20th century. As such, his images, more than any other, shaped our perceptions of this era.
