More information here.

Archbishop Ricardo Cardinal Ezzati of Santiago de Chile appreciates the important work of Héctor Landskron, Profesor de Religión y Fotógrafo, for his important support of this extraordinary exhibition.

Zucchetto and Biretta Worn by the Patriarch of the Catholic Apostolic Church of Jerusalem

His Sacred Beatitude and Eminenence Emeritus Patriarch Isaac L. Kramer

Blue zucchetto with white lining

Blue biretta with white pompon

He seems to have chosen episcopal blue as his colour, rather like 18th century bishops in Europe. 
Maybe the white pom is to reflect his patriarchal status?

The Monumental Significance of Christian Head Coverings

Abuna Salomon
Ethiopian Orthodox Monk living in Jerusalem

If you watch the film "Hats of Jerusalem", directed by Nati Adler,
at 18:23 minutes, Abuna Salomon is interviewed about his head covering,
a purple qob (he mention it as "the crown"):

"You mean about the crown?
This crown's origin, the one who started was Jesus Christ.
During the crucifixion of Jesus Christ he had a thorn crown.
That means for us monks, we are his followers.
When we wear this crown, that means,
at the same time, we feel your pain.
We are under you.
You are our real God.
You are the son of God and we follow your rule."

Abuna Salomon, a simple monk living in Jerusalem,
explained in simple words why Christian clergy should wear a head covering!
To remember Jesus Christ's pain.

"I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me."
Galatians 2:20
