Last week saw the opening of a photography exhibition by Egyptian artist Nagwa Diab at Al-Shomoua Art and Culture Foundation in Cairo's Maadi.

The exhibition showcases around 60 photographs of different sizes under the theme “Moroccan colours.”

She also captured a number of Morocco's ancient cities, including Marrakesh and Fez.

The exhibition was inaugurated by the Moroccan ambassador, Ahmed Al-Tazi, and the opening featured a number of well-known figures: Salah Diab, chairman of the board of directors of Al-Masry Al-Youm newspaper; Hussein Abdel-Basir, director-general of the Antiquities Museum at the Bibliotheca Alexandrina; and Naglaa El-Ahwani, former minister of investment.

The event also saw attendance of poet Ahmed El-Shahawi, novelist Youssef Zidan, and visual artists Wafaa Nashashibi, Rania El-Hakim and Randa Fouad.

The Al-Shomoua ("candles") Art and Culture Foundation is a cultural space founded and managed by author and cultural moderator, Lotus Abdel-Kerim.

Among her most notable works is Journey in Search of Myself: Story of a Life, a biographical book through which Abdel-Kerim gives voice to her passion for arts and culture and also discusses the many accomplished women she has encountered.
