Slide1 l.jpg

From July 2004 to July 2005, I lived in the City Victorious, The Mother of the World, Al-Qahira, Cairo. On leave from my usual position at Augusta State University, I taught sociology and anthropology at the American University of Cairo.

The photographs that follow are traces of a love story, of my enchantment by Cairo and by Egypt and by the Cairenes and other Egyptians who welcomed me.
