Eight large photographic prints by Bassam Al Zoghby are displayed in the central hall of the Saad Zaghloul Cultural Center.

Under the title Solo, Al Zoghby visually explores the subject of loneliness.

“The feeling of loneliness is not related to sitting alone, it could be not being in tune with people around you, feeling disconnected or that everyone is distracted from you in their own world,” Al Zoghby tells Ahram Online.

The works are thematically different than Al Zoghby’s photojournalism for Al-Ahram, where he covers arts and culture events.

Yet visually, Al Zoghby stays true to his love for capturing movement which makes even his journalistic photos artistic.

Al Zoghby is a photographer and photojournalist specialising in arts and culture.

His work has been featured in various Al-Ahram’s publications -- including Ahram Online -- for over 10 years. 

Saad Zaghloul Cultural Centre will be hosting three other solos at the same time: The Holy Knowledge by Chadi Adib Salama, Fi Hadret Mawlana (In The Presence of Mawlana) by Tamer Shahin, and Sodfa (Serendipity) by Tarek Radi.
