The passport is an official document that reflects the identity of its holder everywhere he/she goes. Sometimes it’s used as a statement to express someone’s opinion about something that bother him/her. Looking at the current Egyptian passport; in my opinion, it doesn’t reflect our Identity, but instead, it reflects how we want the world to perceive us. Raising awareness about Egypt’s identity and how it changed through the period between the 25th of January 2011 to the 14th of August 2013 was the aim of this project. In other words, it was the spark of a new future for Egypt. The final passport includes photographs that were taken throughout the revolution from which they document what happened each day or what happened in the main events of the revolution. Each person will perceive them in a different way since the revolution was based on different opinions and loyalties. For the design of the cover I wanted to keep it as the current original passport since the change happened inside only.
