The ever evolving landscape of Cairo

Egypt

Over the last ten years, Cairo has undergone sweeping infrastructural transformations, resulting in the eradication or irreversible modification of monuments, landmarks, and entire neighbourhoods. As a consequence, the city has become unrecognisable to many of its residents. ‘A City without Memory’ aims to chronicle the experience of navigating this constantly evolving urban landscape, where spaces imbued with nostalgia, attachment, and familiarity are rapidly dwindling. This ongoing series by Ebrahim Bahaa-Eldin combines a personal touch with documentary elements, seeking to capture and express the profound sense of incomprehensible loss.
