Travelers

Signs in Egypt
Photo essay

By Namdar Nasser
June 4, 2003
The Iranian

I shot these photos during my recent travel to Egypt, including Alexandria and Cairo. I have chosen subjects related to Western influence in under-devolpoed countries. Living in Sweden for about 20 years, my travel to Egypt brought back memories of Iran during the timeof the Shah.

To the people living in Egypt or countries that are in the same situation, these signs are not unusal and are obvious elements of everyday life. To them, these signs are not necessarily foreign to their native culture but symbols of modern life.

I don't want to write about my thoughts and conclusions. Let the pictures speak for themselves.
