“Seaside Shadows” a solo exhibition by Egyptian documentary photographer Bassam Ihab. What does photography set on the beach conjure up in our imagination? Pleasant memories depict relaxing, fun, socializing and, most obviously, holidays. In the project Seaside Shadows, Ihab takes us on a somewhat different visual exploration of life alongside the Corniche in Alexandria.
The exhibition features stark black and white photographs enhanced by contrast and shadow, as Ihab presents a dramatized vision of beach life in Alexandria and Marsa Matrouh (30 November- 22 December).
