Walk through the busy streets of Egypt and you will find out that you notice something different all the time. Everything about the locals is interesting - from their clothes choice to their everyday habits and lifestyle. With so much diversity, the country is combining old with new, traditional with modern, the past with the present. As Egypt is connecting northeast Africa with the Middle East, it is easy to see how different cultures have influenced the cultural mosaic of the nation.
Our contributing street photographers travelled to the sandy land of pharaohs and pyramids to explore the street scene of modern Egypt. Wander around the streets of the busy cities with us and explore the country from a fresh perspective. This is a photo guide documenting the lifestyle of the locals the way our photographers saw it.
