Item description for Egypt Unexpected: 1001 Days in Photographs by Silvia Dogliani...

This book of extraordinary photographs of the 'other side' of Egypt is the result of the more than three years that Italian photojournalist Silvia Dogliani has spent in the country, traveling, meeting people, and looking out for the unexpected. Through her pictures, she presents a remarkable -- and different -- portrait of Egypt, avoiding the well-known history and the popular views, focusing instead on life as it is lived by its people. Three main oppositions are the focus of this book: Noise -- the infinite variety of sounds that are life's constant background -- and Silence -- secretly hidden and always desired; Spirit -- a fascinating labyrinth of beliefs -- and Movement -- the action of lively faces and places; Past -- the magnificent memories touched by nostalgia -- and Future -- the fervent wish for improvement. Complementing the 150 color pictures are informal interviews, conducted by the photojournalist and her co-writer Theresa Everline, with Egyptians! and non-Egyptians from all walks of life -- both the famous and the not so famous -- whose words give a further feeling of the real Egypt, an insight beyond the pyramids, temples, and tombs.

Reviews - What do customers think about Egypt Unexpected: 1001 Days in Photographs?

Quite good  Sep 13, 2007
I bought this book because I wanted to look at some pictures of Cairo. What I found when I opened it was better that what I expected. I liked the photos and I did not got bored reading the texts, which are mostly in the form of interviews of famous Egyptian people (like the Governor of Alexandria and Naguib Mahfouz, the writer). The texts offer a glimpse at Egyptian life and the photos are nice. I recommend it.
