Faces of Cairo is a collection of photographs that take you on a tour of the land and its people. Cairo is chaos at its most magnificent, infuriating and beautiful. The distorted roar of the muezzins' call to prayer echoes out from duelling minarets. Overwhelming car horns bellow tuneless symphonies amid avenues of faded 19th-century grandeur, while donkey carts rattle down dusty lanes lined with colossal monuments. This city's constant buzz is a product of its 30 million inhabitants, simultaneously stretching Cairo's infrastructure, crushing it under their collective weight. The smog is heavy, but its energy is stimulating and exhilarating!
