Photographing Egypt originates from a major retrospective exhibition of his work, which took place in March 2005 at the American University in Cairos Sony Gallery. It is a collection of his rare color photographs of Egypt, taken over the past forty years depicting the epic grandeur of Egypt. Photographs in the book include historic pictures of Gamal Abd al-Nassers funeral cortege leaving Qasr al-Nil Bridge and of the last Nile flood to come to Egypt, as well as aspects of the country rarely seen-the unique domes of Cairo, the extraordinary multicolored pavilions of the Tentmakers Street, the gathering of jasmine blossoms in the Nile Delta, the search for the elusive desert truffle, the shadow puppet plays of Cairos street theater, and the hammams of the medieval city.The photographs are accompanied by extracts from the photographers narration to his Nile film Fountains of the Sun, and from his essays that have appeared over the years in Aramco World Magazine.
