EGYPTIAN VISUAL ARTIST,MAHA MAAMOUN-PRO CAIRO!!







"Cairoscapes"

I loveee this picture..2 men fighting in the middle of grass..priceless!!



Maha's work is famous pour son brin d'ironisme...modernism/traditions




This piece is called "In a furnished flat in Cairo" ..she tries to illustrate the need for people to have material things to feel secure...




Pretty paysages en Egypte





Promoting local tourism



Maha was born in Cairo in 1972, she's a well seasoned celebrated photographer who has participated in various photography exhibits throughout the world among them, La Biennale de Dakar,she was also the co-curator of PhotoCairo3...

She's most famous for her word centered around flower dresses that Egyptian women tend to wear-she called that serie "Cairoscapes" ..To Maha, this symbolises a moment of peace despite the violence in her city of Cairo...

She's had the honor in 2003 to have her work displayed on local Cairo buses..

Djaa there are some great photographers in Egypt:)
