Publisher's presentation:

"Capturing Cairo between the overthrow of Morsi and Mubarak, Bialobrzeski’s images portray daily life in the Egyptian capital at a time of major urban, social and political upheaval and renewal. As silent and tranquil as they are anxious and tense, the images demonstrate Bialobrzeski’s ability to find beauty in chaos. The atmosphere is charged as we, the viewer, are left to contemplate what turn Cairo will take next."

Please note we are also offering copies (signed or unsigned) of Athens Diary, the second part of Peter Bialobrzeski's trilogy (see "Suggestions" tab).
