Gil Cohen-Magen spent a decade getting to know the closed world of Israel’s ultra-orthodox, persuading community elders to let him record their daily lives, family ceremonies and religious rituals in a project that changed his own perceptions.  Cohen Magen came to Jewish Book Week 2013 to open a lens on a little known world.

Cohen-Magen was working as a photojournalist for the international Reuters news agency, recording some of the most violent scenes of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, when he was asked to take pictures of everyday life among the Hassidim.
