“When I first started shooting, photography was not at all well established in Egypt. It was looked at most of the time as an invasion of privacy, especially on the streets where fear was planted. However, the spread of cameras and the presence of social media slowly took over and people started to understand and value photography and documentation. This especially happened during the time of the 2011 revolution which made people realise how relevant it is to document everything happening around them.” 📷 @bebbax -

Due to the western world’s ‘fast fashion’, tons of bags, filled with secondhand clothing find their way to the African continent annually. These donations are not as generous as one might think though, because African sewers and clothing companies cannot compete with the influx of cheap clothing. Consequently, local sewing workshops and African prints are slowly disappearing. A concerning development and enormous shame, don’t you think?

[MiddlePassage] "So you mean to tell me that someone down your ancestry line survived being chained to other human bodies for several months in the bottom of a disease-infested ship during the Middle Passage, lost their language, customs and traditions, picked up the English language as best they could while working free of charge from sunup to sundown as they watched babies sold from out of their arms and women raped by ruthless slave owners.

Took names with no last names, no birth certificates, no heritage of any kind, braved the Underground Railroad, survived the Civil War to enter into sharecropping...

Learned to read and write out of sheer will and determination, faced the burning crosses of the KKK, averted their eyes at the black bodies swinging from ropes hung on trees...

Fought in World Wars as soldiers to return to America as boys, marched in Birmingham, hosed in Selma, jailed in Wilmington, assassinated in Memphis, segregated in the South, ghettoed in the North, ignored in history books, sterotyped in Hollywood...

and in spite of it all someone in your family line endured every era to make sure you would get here and you receive one rejection, face one obstacle, lose one friend, get overlooked, and you want to quit? How dare you entertain the very thought of quitting. People you will never know survived from generation to generation so you could succeed. Don’t you dare let them down!!"

It is NOT in our DNA to quit!
