Time to talk about “The Other Egypt”… on Radio Mernet on 25 October 2012 (14.00-16.00 UK time), our studio guest was a globally-roaming local artist: Rebecca Soliman. She is a photographer and she has also been involved in a number of social and artistic community projects. In her own words, Rebecca is of mixed origin, half German and half Egyptian, and she sees photography not as a profession, but as a passion. Her latest exhibition, entitled “The Other Egypt”, was launched a few days ago at the Hove Library. It is a pictorial journey across the Sinai peninsula and its people, The Bedouins. We also discussed the natural beauty of the peninsula, people, power, politics, corruption, and Egyptian revolution and aftermath.
