Materials: series of 7 photos
Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK007835).
For the series Cairoscapes, Maamoun photographs the many dresses with floral patterns seen daily on the streets of Cairo.

Cairoscapes is assembled from panoramic photographs, presenting eye-level cityscapes of the everyday that are both fleeting and intimate.
