Nicholas Nabokov (1903-1978)

Guest room, Mishkenot Sha’ananim, Jerusalem
19 April 1976

Nabokov was a composer, writer and self-described cosmopolitan. His cousin was the novelist, Vladimir Nabokov.

After taking a few pictures of Nabokov outside, the photographer opted for this one in his guest room with the background of the old city visible through the door at left.
