Art Alert: 'Shouf' photography exhibition in Atelier du Caire

Ahram Online, Sunday 5 Jan 2014

'Shouf' is a photo exhibition compiling stories by a number of Egyptian photographers who will be displaying their work in Atelier du Caire from 12 to 17 January

A group of young Egyptian photographers will be displaying a collection of themed photographs in an exhibition titled 'Shouf: Photo Stories from Egypt' in Downtown's Atelier du Caire from 12 to 17 January. 

The photographers participating are Aly Hazzaa, George and Samuel Mohsen, Heba Khalifa, Randa Shaath, Sabry Khaled and Ziad Hassan. 

The seven photographers all work in photo journalism and chose photography as the medium through which they tell stories. Their photography expresses their views about their country and the world, yet each of them has a different eye and a different angle, and the diversity of their backgrounds and techniques makes an interesting exhibition.

The artists' aim is to create meaningful, subjective narratives through their photographs, countering  traditional forms of media that stereotype individuals and the fixed, rigid molds of society - in their own words, "establishing a parallel, counter, visual memory."
