Egyptian Photographs 2009

Since my childhood visit to Egypt in the late 1950's I have returned twice, once in 1976 and once in 2009.

 

 

Photographing Egypt 2009

Theses images were taken between Cairo and Abu Simbel in April 2009.

A common sight: a man on a motorcycle wearing only an unfastened football helmet for protective head gear, while talking on a cell phone with one hand, smoking a cigarette and holding a bundle under one arm all the while negotiating a flow of traffic that would make Charie Chaplin smile at the comic insanity that swirls endlessly in Cairo. I love this place.
