Product Description

Divided into three series, the extensive collection of Daniela Keizer's photographs taken in the winter of 2008/09 in Cairo are combined in this illustrated book. Observed from the inside of a building on the Champollion Road, a picture of the adjacent area unfolds in 296 photographs. Again and again the same buildings, roofs and trees appear in the midday light, at sunset or at night in the reflection of electric lighting. A repetition that sharpens our perception. Slight shifts in perspective, time of day and weather direct the eye to ever new details. The illustrated book is accompanied by a collection of conversations in which, starting with the viewing of the photographs, the focus is on everyday Egyptian life. The acoustic recordings of these observations, Portrayals and narratives provide additional insights into this district. They are accessible as audio sequences online and can be retrieved along with further information on the project website.
