Photobook Egypt is a powerful series of photography books; each dedicated to a theme or a project photographed and narrated by remarkable Egyptian and regional photographers (whether emerging or established) and curated and published by Photopia Cairo. Our dream is to offer a non-digital platform to document extraordinary photography work and make it accessible and affordable to photography enthusiasts & collectors. It is an ongoing project of enjoyable and visually rich photography that proudly represents Egypt's and the region's prominent photographers. Collecting them would be like owning a small part of Egypt on your bookshelf..
The photobook culture in Egypt is an underrated. In light of the powerful photography work coming out of Egypt and the region, Photopia team considered curating and publishing such work and offer it to photography enthusiasts in Egypt & the world.
Nine photographers, nine beautiful stories published by Photobook Egypt.
