A friend of mine has pointed me to an extraordinarily talented photographer on Flickr who takes great shots of the Chasidic community of London.

The photographer, who goes by the name “David Braun”, shows to have a keen eye for capturing everyday life scenes as well as life stories in his portraits. Even though most of his pictures are taken in black and white, there’s so much life, personality and intensity in them that they make you feel you could grasp the atmosphere.

Several of his pictures are just plainly adorable, such as this one.

Also, the Jewish Women’s Archive has joined the Flickr Commons.
