Between 2011 and 2013, Emine Gozde Sevim travelled in Egypt to live to transition of the post-Moubarak era. The movement and the sounds of Cairo, where she finally stayed for 16 month, first brought her to film, but while the historic transition developed, she turned to black and white photography. More than giving an assertion about the events, her work is an honest quest of a photographer in a foreign country.
Discrete, Sevim tells a different story of Egypt in that period, but also of the people she's meeting. As if, behind her camera, she was traveling in prolonged memory. She patiently let the photographs come to her, rather than brutally looking for them around her.
