 The truth

During the last uprising wave and cracking down on Islamist in Egypt June 30, 2013. All the media outlets have been accused of taking a side, “when you point a camera to a side you neglect the rest of the real scene” Said a protester to me “People are following those media outlets which confirms what already in their minds, not to get new info!” he added. Apparently all parties involved in the conflict were violating the sense of “peace” which was the highlighted title for the Egyptian revolution since Jan 25, 2011.
For this project, I have been shooting in many events related to the last uprising wave conflict June 30 including storming Rabaa and it’s massacre, people celebrating the Islamist stepping down at the presidential palace, people celebrating the memory of Jan 25, 2014, protests, marches and the consequences for the Islamist. The referendum and the presidential elections process, and the Islamist trials.I decided, tripling exposures the events and gather scenes in one slide and giving the chance for the audience to see the hall scene the way they wants and see whatever they want to see!

  South Giza at El-Saf village, a primary dam was built on El-Saf channel by the farmers nearby, in purpose of raising the water level at their farms. The dam structure is violating the irrigation law for the irrigating water distribution. As far as some of the residents called it bridge. But the structure was differ from the bridge purpose! The water pressure broke it down, the water flow caused a 10 meters slot in the road and stormed 70 houses! The residents of the of the lower land level on the western bank left their houses, specially when they know that these water which stormed their houses was actually sewage! The affected residents went to complain to the mayor military General Said El-Gammal at his manor, as they are homeless and most of them depends on a law income which range between LE300 and LE 600 per month for each family. The Corps of Engineers headed to the village this morning to rescue the land and families after the mayor military General Said El-Gammal asked their help. Egypt. Thursday, October 17, 2013.

A love story between a Muslim boy and a Coptic girl ends up with their escape together or even marriage. A Coptic man tries to fleeter with a Muslim girl in the street. A church takeover a land in purpose of expansion for the buildings, or may be a statement for any religious leader. These what the Egyptians used to hear about the sectarian strife proceedings. But what are new about this time at Al-Khesos in Al-Qalubia “a northern province for Cairo”, are the Nazis signs and slogans which used to be used by Adolf Hitler combined with a kids name called “Saleh” who wrote his name next to the Nazi sign at Al-Azhar primary school “Islamic school” and a mosque.

Around 28 hours, sequences of burnings scenes, shooting down as people from both sides were killed, gathering at the church and claiming from the priests for the protection by the army. After then, a customary session for preventing bloodshed until interring the victims.

Ten scenes tell the sectarian strife proceedings in 28 hours at Al-Khesos ended with prayers at the church not devoid of  shooting down. (Photo/Hamada Elrasam)

Riot Police Violations

On this Tuesday, March 12, 2013. Bakar 12 years young boy shows the signs of torture committed by the riot police officers on him the day before. Bakar Lost his way while he was in Cairo with his father 3 days ago. After then he joined the protesters in Tahrir Square seeking for a safe place to sleep and eat until he could find his father who he don’t know his phone number.
Bakar was watching the clashes at Kasr El-Nile bridge between the protesters and the riot police until the riot police arrested him and kept him in one of their armored trucks, torturing and insulting him for eight hours and then they released him without reporting to keep themselves away from Impeachments.
