Ahram Online, Tuesday 24 May 2011
The Rebirth of a Nation, an exhibition currently being held at the Hellenic American Union in Athens, displays photographs taken by many young artists during the January 25 Revolution in Egypt

The exhibition entitled "The Rebirth of the Nation" is currently being held at the Hellenic American Union in Athens, and is the second step of AGORA Arts & Culture showcasing works of 20 young artists who were active during the revolution.

"The Rebirth of the Nation" is an offshoot of another photography exhibition organised by AGORA Photography, "EGYPT after the Revolution", which was held in March 2011 at the Alexandria Atelier for Artists and Writers.

The exhibition features photographs which illustrate the various stages of the revolution and highlight the rise of positive feelings due to psychological and moral gains achieved and the hope that enlightened the lives of the youth.

Participating photographers are Nagwa Abdelhamid, Asmaa Abdellatif, Abdallah Dawestashy, Heba Elbegawi, Amy Elshaarawy, Hagar Gamal Eldin, Corinne Grassi, Mohamed Hatem, Wessam Maher, Sherif Mohamed, Ahmed Refaat, Taymour Senbel, Bassem Talaat, and Zee Mo.

The exhibition in Athens opened on 16 May and will continue until 15 June.
