In a constantly growing and in transition city, the dramatic collision of people and architecture gives Alexandria a unique essence and existence. They are living breathing places that are simultaneously busy, lonely, awake, tired, and alive. Through the daily observations, I am trying to capture, interpret and document richly detailed scenes of everyday life in the city and therefore understand the modern socio-cultural life of the city. This set of street photographs and writings is intended to provide a wealth of information on the visual culture of Alexandria during a time of profound change and rapid transformation.

I write to express my thoughts and feelings mainly about Alexandria and some other cities and places I have been to. I write about people I have encountered and about different lives, experiences, and realities I have lived. Words that represent my observations and records, they could be accurate or not but they are my voice.
