Full-color photography collection of interior walls made visible along Cairo Ring Road 75.

Text by Basil Ramzy. 

Cairo is one of the fastest growing cities in the world. It expands unrelentingly. Its people’s dreams/hopes/needs multiplying. Concrete pours and hardens in response — buildings/bridges/highways… protecting people, elevating people. Dominating. Bulldozing right over them. You may see the typical oppressiveness of a fast-developing mega-city. These photos will show you the energy, dynamism, and playfulness that really fuels it — something irrepressible.
