Beyond Here is Nothing (2011-2017)
Enclosed between four walls, the sound of silence never seemed louder. ItÕs claustrophobic. I wait for the phone to ring, check for emails obsessively, eat everything out of the fridge. The hunger remains. I feel like if I dig my hand deep into my soul, I will find nothing. The awareness I am experiencing is unspeakable. Faces change when we meet. Is their solitude reflected in mine? There is an awkward silence. In it, a minute feels like an hour. An hour a day. A day can be a lifetime.

With images spanning from 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 work is an experience edited to look like a one night’s encounter .
