Earlier today I had the opportunity to visit David Rubinger's "Eyewitness to History: 60 Years of Israeli Photojournalism" exhibition that's currently showing at the South African Jewish Museum here in Cape Town. It was the first time that I've seen any of David's work and I have to say it's simply exceptional. If you get a chance make sure you go see this one, it's on until the end of July, 2015.

"In mid-May this year, 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 in 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 will be 91 in June this year, 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.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to view this unique exhibition of photographs." [South African Jewish Museum]

The exhibition will run from the 18th of May to the end of July.
