    This Cairo-based photographer, Omar El-Chahat, brings to life the simple, almost eerie aspects of downtown that too often go unnoticed. With particular attention to lines, colour, and contrast, El-Chahat captures the beautiful essence of our city through images of architecture and people – still and in motion. Skilled at presenting alternate perspectives in a single frame, El-Chahat utilises superb attention to detail to expose opposing viewpoints and, meanwhile, dignifies even further the seemingly mundane. As he travels, he also documents other regions of Egypt, such as Dahab and Alexandria.
