City of dead

As a photographer, space/places interest me a lot. I love to photograph place, live there day after day and explore the relation between the place and the people, who live there. “The City of the Dead”, explored over and over again for its natural beauty and how people live in the cemetery. “The City of the Dead” is the cemetery below the Mokattam Hills in southeastern Cairo, Egypt.

It is a place, dense grid of tomb and mausoleum structures, where some people live and work amongst the dead. Other than those favorite tourist spots in Egypt, ‘City of Dead’ is the place, which tells different story of life & death. Photograph in color, I will portray the living condition of the people, there relation with the cemetery & the urbanization pressure on the city. It is visually possible to represent the juxtaposition of class struggle & the place’s colorful existence.
