'Layer of Green', a photography exhibition at CIC

Cairo's Contemporary Image Collective will host a new photography exhibition, Layer of Green, showcasing the work of young photographers from Cairo and Alexandria that focuses on the environment.

The participating photographers are Ahmed Hamed, Ahmed Safyeldin, Amr El-Maghraby, Ebrahim El-Moly, Manar Morsi, Maryam Ahmed, Mai El-Shazly, Mireille El-Magrissy, Nadia Mounier, Sara Sallam and Wafaa Samir.

The exhibition is the result of a workshop organised by the Goethe Institute and the CIC Photo School last November that focused on the social, cultural, political and economic context of “the layer of green” or the environment.

Participating photographers shared their ideas on the concept, delving into a visual and interactive journey to define the layer and pinpointing its different manifestations around us. The instructors were Egyptian artists Rana El-Nemr and German artist Jens Liebchen. Both are co-curators of the Layer of Green exhibition, as is the Contemporary Image Collective

The works displayed in the exhibition tackle different perspectives on “green”, including agriculture, traffic, recreation, consumerism, life and death.

The exhibition will be open from Saturday through to Wednesday, from 12pm to 9pm.

Sunday, 16 March at 7pm 
(Open for one month, Saturdays through Wednesdays from 12 to 9pm)
Contemporary Image Collective, 22 Abdel Khalek Tharwat St., 4th Floor, Downtown Cairo
