Heliopolis-based photography hub Photopia will hold a launch and book-signing event on 18 May for the second batch in the Photobook Egypt series.
The event follows the highly successful launch in December of the first batch in the series of photography books by Egyptian and regional photographers.
Each book shows images based around a particular Egypt-related theme or topic, from kitchen utensils to abandoned rooms and train stations.
The entire series consists of seven books, available individually or as a boxed set, providing a non-digital platform for the work of Egyptian and regional photographers.
Five photographers launched their books on December, and they are joined by two new contributors in this second phase.
The four books featured in the event at Photopia are: Kitchen Memories by Yehia Alaily; Tales of the White Mountain by Mohamed Ali Eddin; The Seven Seeds by Asmaa Gamal; and The Nubians: A Displaced Dynasty by Nour El Refai.
The event will also include talks by each of the photographers in which they present their work.
The books are narrated in both English and Arabic, and are curated and published by Photopia. Copies of the book will be available for sale at the event.
Thursday 18 May from 6pm to 10pm
Photopia, 15 Somal St., Korba, Heliopolis, Cairo
