"Revisits El-Tantawy's journey through Cairo's iconic Tahrir Square five years after Egypt's momentous revolution and one year after the release of 'In The Shadow of The Pyramids'. Features previously unpublished images and written reflections which take readers behind the photographs and into the thoughts and emotions that went into making them. A reflection on the act of photography itself" (Publisher's blurb). Laura El-Tantawy was born in the United Kingdom to Egyptian parents. She grew up in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and the United States. Not surprisingly, her photography is motivated and inspired by questions about her identity, and their intimate connection, in her case, to social concerns. An absolute "must-have" title for Laura El-Tantawy collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated/numbered as such on the front flap. It is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the flap by Laura El-Tantawy. It is signed directly on the book's flap itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. 15 color plates. One of the most brilliant photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO AMAK MAHMOODIAN'S "SHENASNAMEH" TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0993232396. $70.00
