Cairo Through The Windscreen

 


"I made a long and involved transition from the black-and-white darkroom through SLR-digital to iPhone photography; here as elsewhere in visual creativity I am after looking at the familiar and the everyday in a new way. Much of my work regularly appears on yrakha.com (yrakha.wordpress.com);

 

 

and I regularly contribute to Instagram as @y_doubleexposure_rakha."

 

 

 


 

 

Virtual exhibition. These photos of the everyday Cairo were taken by Youssef Rakha, Egyptian writer, poet, and photographer.
