As tensions continue to rise in the aftermath of Mubarak’s fall and protests and violence remain in the streets, “Embed in Egypt” tells the story of the parallel reality of everyday life, manifested in personal moments. Covering a period between 2011-2013, the series in black and white is a reconstruction of a prolonged personal memory about a place in the midst of a historic transition and the dynamic human story within, depicting an evolving, complex and non-linear reality, expressed in the language of a photographic diary.
