Egypt

Menya’s Kids (Child Labor, Egypt).

Myriam Abdelaziz is a French photographer of Egyptian origins,  born in Cairo. Her work tells stories of its participants. Her inquiry into the stories of people takes her around the globe searching for narratives that overcome physical and cultural barriers and often reveal what we have in common: glimpses of solitude, hope, insecurity, dignity. She is the member of the only all female photo collective of the Middle East – Rawiya.

Her project Menya’s Kids deals with child labor in the quarries of Menya, Egypt.
