Point of Contact

I hated Cairo at first sight. coming from a smaller city I imagined that being in a bigger space will be fun? I went there with the grin of a curious cat, but people from Cairo never smiled back. They looked sad and lost and I felt suffocated, lost and alone so I started to take pictures based on what I saw. But after that I started to like the city and my feelings started to change and once it did, people in Cairo didn’t seem so sad anymore, it was me, I was the point of contact between people, my feelings, their feelings and my interpretation of it. The project is a personal journey on how fascinating the engagement with self and others can vary from being a mere observer to an actual participant simultaneously and unconsciously.
