El-Saba’ Habat (The Seven Seeds) is a photography book by young Egyptian photographer Asmaa Gamal.

The book is a part of a project called Photo Book Egypt. 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 illustrated and published by Photopia Cairo. It is a series of wonderful picture books that reflect the power of the region's photographers and their ability to recount facts and hopes through their lens.
