Cairo Inside OutBook - 2016
Cairo is a city of splendor and spectacle, long celebrated as much for its warmth and bustling street life as for the legacy of its tumultuous past. Yet for the countless visitors who fall under its spell, the prolonged din of its crowds and traffic can seem overwhelming at times, temptingthem out of the city's open spaces into its shadow light, the cooler, quieter interiors of restaurants, homes, hotels, and terraces. Cairo Inside Out evokes the light and moods of this great metropolis with stunning photographs shot from the city's indoor havens. We observe it through and fromnostalgic haunts, such as Cafe Riche and the Windsor Hotel, and look out onto its great sights - the Nile, the Red Pyramid at Dahshur, Ibn Tulun mosque - from the most intimate urban interiors, homes, and watersides. For those who may have lived in Cairo, this is a reminder of a city that moves andyet remains wonderfully unchanged. For visitors and residents, this evocative collection, an unabashed homage to Cairo's persistent color and allure, will inspire them to visit those places once more.
