For now: just three shots until I do the sorting in my albums.
There are at least two Egyptian areas where these heavenly natures invite themselves very often in the living rooms of domestic spaces: east and west, among the Bedouins of Sinai and the Bedouin in Marsa Matrouh and Isiwan of Siwa oasis.
The three following pictures were taken at Siwa, in January 2004 and November 2009, three marbu’aa, the living rooms, only rooms of a house designed to accommodate the male sociability. On the second snapshot, the room is specifically well-kept because it is the second day of the Aid al-Adha, the feast of sacrifice.
The posters of what we call here the mandhar tabi’i, natural landscapes, are glued directly on the wall of the reception room.
