I continue to research the vast collection of photos from the LIFE Magazine. I like to collate photos thematically or select photos from a series by one photographer. I noticed very interesting photos by Paul Schutzer, most of them as a Life correspondent in the early 1960s. Here are some photos I really like from the 1960 series in Israel.
