art of resistance, Egypt

Egypt: Mother and Son.

Denis Dailleux is a great photographer I already wrote about, a true Cairo (and Egypt) lover. His work is a lasting tribute to the generosity of the Egyptian people he fell in love with on his first visit to Egypt (almost twenty years ago). Mother and Son is one of his most delicate projects. He photographed mothers and their sons (all of the sons being bodybuilders, so – at the first glance – big big machos stereotype). As Delphine Henry described it:

“With great respect and sensitivity, he takes us into these families’ inner sanctum, where a bodybuilder son’s absolute love sounds like an ode to all mothers, with the power to move viewers the world over.”
