“Photo Elia” was founded by Elia Kahvedjian, a survivor of the Armenian Genocide which was orchestrated by the Turks in 1915.

Brought to Nazareth by the American Near East Relief foundation (A.N.E.R.F) Elia developed a skill in photography and photo development, and became the Photography teacher apprentice.

As an adult Elia operated three photography shops in Jerusalem, and in his free time he took many photos of Jerusalem in the 1920’s-1940’s.

Today his son and grandson sell prints of his unique B\W photo collection of Jerusalem in a small and charming store in the Christian quarter.
