At the Dwek Gallery in Jerusalem this summer I took this photo of a photograph by Bern Schwartz (1914-1978).
What I enjoyed most of this exhibit of faces and friends of Israel was the written explanation given about the Archbishop's sitting:
.Metropolitan of CaesariaVasilios Blastsosborn 1923
In 1962 Blastsos was elected Archbishop of Jordan and in 1975 was elevated to Metropolitan of the First Throne Metropolis of Caesaria of the Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem.
'Towards the latter half of the sitting, one of the nuns appeared,' Schwartz recalled. I noticed how the Archbishop's eyes lighted up when she came by, so I gave her a cable release and told her to snap it when she felt the Archbishop looked the best.'
