Please Watch U R You Head
Edition of 250, first edition
‘Please Watch U R You Head’ is the warning that greets visitors to the roof of the Holy Sepulcher church in Jerusalem. One of the many monks or priests who work and worship there has been compelled to etch the words into the top of the archway. The warning seems like an apt metaphor for visitors to the city, which has its own psychiatric syndrome named after it; the Jerusalem Syndrome. Many who walk through the city, since the middle ages and still today - find the experience very overwhelming and some, albeit often those with an underlaying condition, get lost in their reveries.
This book invites the reader to a safe, hand held virtual tour of the city’s highly contested urban landscape- with its colours, streets and sights to make up their own mind.
