Brilliant and Creative Egyptian Photography

Post by Hafiz »

The Egyptian media awards for best photograph (not sponsored by the State or the Creativity Syndicate, Photography Syndicate, Art Syndicate or the Visual Syndicate) prove that not all creativity and insight in Egypt is in jail or buying a one way plane ticket:

An anti-sexual harassment police person – good on her, hit them hard and hit them often:

Some young military recruits asleep in a vast classroom receiving instruction. Obviously having 200 in a class is regarded as learning – only in Egypt and nowhere else:

and a young girl waiting for her fathers trial:

The winner is too painful to post. Finalists available at: https://egyptianchronicles.blogspot.com ... .html#more

The everyday life category is more lighthearted; here is one of a wedding scene in Belqas:

The 20th century taught many lessons one of which was that creativity and innovation die in a dictatorship. Slaves are more relevant.

There is also a yearly mashup of the wackiest and most popular of Egyptian video clips. Even with no knowledge of Arabic its amusing and endearing; https://egyptianchronicles.blogspot.com ... icles.html

For the 500th time - Egyptian Chronicles is a very fine site/blog.
