By The Mediterranean
By The Mediterranean was taken in different coastal cities in Egypt, like Alexandria and Marsa Matrouh. The main idea of the project is to document everyday life and the diversity of people that come from all over Egypt to enjoy the sea. I look for scenes which trigger an immediate emotional or visual response, especially through humor or a fascination with ambiguous, odd, or surreal happenings.
