Mashrabia Gallery's newest exhibition Third Eye will open its doors on 14 December, setting the spotlight on five young Egyptian photographers. 

The exhibition, which is curated by Hala El-Koussy, will include the works of Amr Adel, Sherifa Hamed, Nadia Mounir, Zeyad Tarek Hassan and Tasneem Abdel Rahman. 

El-Koussy worked with the artists for three months prior to the exhibition. She explained that the photographs that will be exhibited represent the musings of each artist. She added the work resembles the artists' views on topics such as freedom, equality and survival, as seen by their "third eye". 

El-Koussy is a freelance photograher, university lecturer and one of the founders of the Cairo-based Contemporary Image Collective (CIC). Her work was exhibited in London, Amsterdam, New York, Geneva as well as Cairo.

The exhibition will open on 14 December and will continue until 13 January 2015
8 Champollion Street, Downtown, Cairo
