Nazar - Arab eyes

Maha Maamoun

CAIROSCAPES (2003)

Nature is present everywhere in the city, the Egyptian photographer Maha Maamoun testifies: not literally, but figuratively. For her series CAIROSCAPES she photographed the many dresses with floral motifs that are to be seen every day in the streets of Cairo. For Maamoun they are not only a surrogate for nature in an urban environment, but are also a point of rest in the midst of the violence of the city. CAIROSCAPES is constructed of panoramic photos, a form generally used for recording urban landscapes. By applying this at the mirco level, the photographs are not overviews, but intimate, and CAIROSCAPES takes on the fleeting nature of a glance.
