I initially arrived to Cairo in the spring of 2013. It was as this point that the first round of presidential elections was happening. My trip was only supposed to last two months. However, I was given the chance to return in the fall to teach photography at American University, Cairo as an adjunct professor in the mass communications department. 


Staying for the year allowed me to work part-time as a contract photographer for various international news outlets. The images in this set represent a small portion of the body of work I was able to produce in that time.
