The photographer Zvi Oron [1888-1980], after experiencing photography in Warsaw and then in the United States, Oron purchased photographic equipment in Egypt, and in 1919 opened a photography studio in Tel Aviv. Worked mainly as a photojournalist. In 1930 he moved to Jerusalem and opened a studio on Jaffa Street. For years he worked in the service of the British government and the world press. The uniqueness of Oron's photographs is that they present a different view, spontaneous and not staged, of the events of the period, and especially of the years of the British mandate in the Land of Israel. In 1969 his photographs were shown at an exhibition in Ashdod and in 1973 at the Israel Museum. In 1974 he presented an exhibition at the Jewish Museum in New York. In the Zionist archive there are 1380 negatives of Oron, of which 800 were taken in Jerusalem. 670 negatives were commissioned by the British Government.
