A Project by Magdalena Kallenberger // Assistant: Abla Mohamed
Staging the City – Cairo Cinemagraphsis an ongoing project documenting public spaces in Cairo. We are looking for small sceneries, little interactions, and untold stories happening within the frame. Small shops, snack bars, bakeries, and other small businesses, their owners and employees, street sellers, and passers-by in different districts of Cairo. Small moments and random incidents, are captured and repeated in an endless loop. The starting point is always one street or square, where we spend one day observing, filming, and documenting. So far we were inDowntown,Dokki,Heliopolis , andArd El Lewa. Further excursions to New Cairo, Giza, Shubra, Maadi and other parts of town are in progress.
