Photopia will host a talk on 17 July by photographer by Mahmoud Hawary on the project titled Humans of Upper Egypt.

The photography project aims to share the culture and traditions of Upper Egyptian society in an effort to bridge gaps and reinforce ties with different subcultures within Egypt.

Hawary's talk will include a presentation of a selection of his photographs, as well as his experience on documenting daily life in Upper Egypt, the objectives behind the project, and challenges he faced.

Hawary is a street photographer, himself from Upper Egypt, working in the field since 2014.

Friday 27 July, at 7pm
Photopia, 15 Somal St., El-Korba, Heliopolis
