Late last year I had the honour of travelling to Egypt for the first time to shoot some content for a wonderful organisation Open Doors. It was the opportunity of a lifetime to go back to the land my Father grew up in and visit the city he grew up in and feel the heartbeat of the country that half my blood hails from. Egypt is such a fascinating country and even though it’s experienced a lot of turmoil throughout its history the people are strong and vibrant and deeply proud of their country.
Below is a collection of street photography and some landscapes I was able to shoot alongside the other work I was doing in-country. I will be making a run of prints of some of these. If you would like to pre-order any please get in touch.
All Images shot on a Canon 5D mkiii and either 35mm f1.4 or 50mm f1.2
If you’d like to see more of my documentary work you can see my images from Cambodia here.
If you’d like to know more about the work of Open Doors you can either head to their website or shoot me an email if you’d like to hear some stories from this trip that aren’t part of this blog post. I saw some incredible things and met some amazing people on this trip. I’m definitely keen to put together a gallery show of some of these images soon if I can find the time. But for now I hope you’ve enjoyed these images and maybe been inspired to go see Egypt for yourself sometime.
