Exhibition: Egypt as you’ve never seen it before

Egypt as you’ve never seen it before: We’re dating ourselves here, but coming up in journalism, we were told, “Everything looks better in black and white.” In an era of super-saturated color and HDR photography, it’s taken our friend, the artist Romany Hafez (Instagram), to remind us that that adage is nowhere more true than here in Omm El Donia. Witness Hafez’s first solo exhibition, the evocatively titled In Spaces, Beginnings and Memories. A white-collar professional by day and noted lecturer on Coptic language and art, Hafez is deeply steeped in Egyptian culture and lore, and it shows in every print on display — each a work of black and white magic. The exhibition is open daily through 31 December 2017 from noon until 11pm at Designers Boulevard, Galleria 40, in Six of October. Tap here for a photo of Hafez with his wife Nermin Adly and curator Khaled Hafez.
