This week, Israeli photographer Nir Alon will deliver a presentation on his documentary photography project "TIPUSIM.com in Jerusalem." In Hebrew, tipusim means characters, personalities or unique individuals.

His project is a series of interviews with Jerusalemites. Over a dozen profiles are already available online, including Beno Leibovici, a watchmaker; Brhan Mekonen, an actress and Itzchak Cohen, who is known as "Itzik the Plumber."

Each profile includes a recorded interview as well as still photos in black and white. Alon said that black-and-white still photography is the best medium to touch the souls of his subjects.

"The essence of Jerusalem isn't hidden under ancient stones. It isn't masked by a cloud of mysticism and belief. The essence of Jerusalem is alive in the people who live here and in the uniqueness of each and every one – a diversified and spectacular human mosaic," Alon said.

Presentation will take place in Jerusalem, in the presence of George Shefi, who is one of Alon's subjects featured in the project. Alon explains he is "happy to give back", especially to this unique group.
