Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp.

For the series Cairoscapes, Maamoun photographs the many dresses with floral patterns seen daily on the streets of Cairo. For Maamoun these comprise not only a surrogate for nature in an urban environment; they are also a point of calm amidst the city's harshness. Cairoscapes is assembled from panoramic photographs, presenting eye-level cityscapes of the everyday that are both fleeting and intimate.
