The Duat exhibition honouring the memory of the Egyptian Nobel prize-winning novelist Naguib Mahfouz will be launched on 30 August at the Consoleya co-working space in Downtown Cairo.
The exhibition showcases a series of photographs taken by Mohamed Hegzay documenting the daily life of Naguib Mahfouz in different times of his life from 1992 till he passed away in 2005.
“Duat” is the afterlife in ancient Egyptian mythology, where kings and queens come back to life to talk about their life deeds to the god Anubis on the day of judgment.

He studied business at Ain Shams University and later started his journey with Al-Ahram Newspaper as an intern in 1990. He was hired later as a photojournalist covering different sectors, including sports, youth, arts, and entertainment. Following that, he became the photography department manager and vice editor in chief at Nisf Al-Dunia Magazine.
