In the Shadow of the Pyramids.
Text and photographs by Laura El-Tantawy.
Self-Published, Amsterdam. 440 pp., 125 illustrations, 9x7x1½". Publisher's Description

Limited to 500 copies, all signed and editioned. Designed by Syb and printed in Holland. 

In the Shadow of the Pyramids is a first person account exploring memory and identity. With images spanning 2005 to 2014, what began as a look in the mirror to understand the essence of Egyptian identity expanded into an exploration of the trials and tribulations of a turbulent nation. The result is dark, sentimental and passionate. Juxtaposing the innocence of the past with the obscurity of the present, the book is an experience, edited to look like a one night’s encounter. A peaceful and tranquil day suddenly turns violent and chaotic, it’s claustrophobic, until a new dawn rises and there is hope again.  440 pages with Japanese folds including 7 smaller text pages & 18 pages as single sheets.
*Shortlisted for 2014 Unseen Dummy Award*
