Capturing Cairo between the overthrow of Morsi and Mubarak, Bialobrzeski’s images portray daily life in the Egyptian capital at a time of major urban, social and political upheaval and renewal. As silent and tranquil as they are anxious and tense, the images demonstrate Bialobrzeski’s ability to find beauty in chaos. The atmosphere is charged as we, the viewer, are left to contemplate what turn Cairo will take next.

“After just ten minutes of driving at a reasonable speed, the traffic comes to a standstill. I look for signs of the ‘Arab Spring’. Nothing. I notice, however, that people love to use their mobile phones while driving. Is this what Western media are calling the ‘Facebook Revolution’?” – 24th Apr 2013

Cairo Diary was shot between 24 – 29th April 2013
