THE COPTS OF EGYPT (Egypt, 2001-2002)

The Coptic Orthodox Church is the most important Christian church of Egypt. It came into existence in the fifth century as a schism from the orthodox church in Constantinople. The Coptic Church is particularly sensitive to tradition, ceremony, mysticism and nostalgia. The feast of a saint is invariably celebrated with a mass gathering at his grave. Dennis Dailleux photographed a number of these atmospheric processions during which Coptic pilgrims reach out to touch the tomb of the saint with their hand.

Denis Dailleux

LE CAIRE (1995-2000)

The French photographer Denis Dailleux has, as he himself admits, a love affair with Cairo. He is fascinated by its atmosphere, the variety of colours and the beauty of the residents of Egypt’s capital city. He discovered the city as a child and since then can be found there regularly. In LE CAIRE he provides an image of daily life in Cairo. In warm, bright colours and deep contrasts in black and white, he reports on his encounters in the streets and cafes, at weddings and in barbershops. His photographic ode to Cairo has been collected in the book Le Caire, with which he won the Fuji Film Prize at the Biarritz photo festival in 2001.
