2020 Auckland Photographer of the Year, Ilan Wittenberg, specialises in documentary street photography that tells a story and evokes emotions.
This exhibition presents Cairo in his signature style of timeless monochrome and expresses his admiration for the city, which he describes as “chaos at its most magnificent: infuriating and beautiful. from above, the distorted roar of the muezzins' call to prayer echoes out from duelling minarets. Below, car horns bellow tuneless symphonies amid avenues of faded 19th-century grandeur, while donkey carts rattle down dusty lanes lined with colossal monuments”.
Faces of Cairo is a unique collection of photographs that take you on a tour of the city and its people.
