An exhibition opens at Tahrir Lounge on 5 February featuring photographs of Egyptian streets taken with a fish eye lens.

The choice of the fish eye lens is to offer a refreshing perspective on everyday life in Cairo. It is also the favoured lens of photographer Bishoy Fayez, who curated the exhibit.

Fayez is one of the founders of Infinity Photography, through which he gives free photography classes.

Tahrir Lounge is a platform for social, political and cultural movements and was created under the Goethe Institute’s direction. 

The exhibition opens with a musical performance by Hosam Hosny, who sang the hit Kol El Banat Bet-hebbak. 

The exhibition opens 5 February at 7 pm, and runs till 12 February
Tahrir Lounge, Inside Goethe Institute , 5 El Bustan str. from Talaat Harb, Downtown
