Description or Abstract

Look anywhere online and you will find that an image search for Egypt will produce one of two possible results: either the pyramids and the sphinx or similar pharaonic artifacts or mass protests and demonstrations from the Arab Spring. But beyond the clichés, photography in Egypt has had a long and rich tradition – one of daring portraiture, classic wedding photographs and modern street photography. Listen as this audio documentary delves into that journey. Photography in Egypt has a long and rich history.This audio documentary will tell you exactly how photography in Egypt went from master photographers making classic studio portraits to the tech-savvy Instagram crowd of today with their filters and smartphones.
