Nazar - Arab eyes

Hala Elkoussy

(RE)CONSTRUCTION (2003)

In (RE)CONSTRUCTION the Egyptian photographer Hala Elkoussy focuses on the tension between photography and reality. At first sight her photographs capture familiar moments from everyday life in Cairo, but in reality they have been staged. Most of the photographs deliberately betray their staged origin by their out of the ordinary poses or situations. Others are more subtle and do not easily give away their nature. The result is a mildly surrealistic series of photographs that consist of earthly images, but do not seem of this world.
