About the director

Esaias Baitel (b. 1949, Trelleborg, Sweden) was born into a Polish-Lithuanian family (both parents fled to Sweden to escape Nazism). He studied at university in Uppsala and, over the next twenty-five years, gained international recognition as a photographer. He has published his work in the magazines Paris Match, Time and Newsweek. His book Jerusalem was published in Paris in the autumn of 2001 – his own view of the mythical town in words and images.
