13 iconic photographs of Egypt

July 23, 2016 /Photography News/ Egypt commemorates today - July 23, 2016 - the 64th anniversary of the 1952 Revolution which inspired other neighboring Arab and African countries to undertake social and economic reforms.

These photographs tell stories of Egyptian people who lead a simple life (long) before the 1952 Revolution. How did Egypt change over time?

    Wow these are great photos, I've spent several years in Egypt and loved every minute of it. These images give an insight into a time long ago, but a time when Egypt was being discovered by the outside world. As a photographer I love looking back into a time gone by using cutting edge (at that time) technology is fascinating. Thanks
