A Photographic Exhibition Opens

12 April 2019

On 12 April 2019, an exhibition opened in the Maq‘ad of Sultan Qaitbey that presented the results of a photographic competition A Thin Line Between the Living and the Dead. From 119 works submitted by 44 photographers, an international jury selected 44 photographs for the exhibition, from which winners were chosen. Prizes for the winning photographers were generously funded by various Egyptian businesses.

The exhibition can be viewed on-line on our website.

Before the exhibition opening, a walking tour was conducted separately in English and in Arabic through the 'Desert of the Mamluks' where our venue is located.

Afterwards, a concert of the virtuoso Austrian musical duo BartolomeyBittmann followed.

The event was part of the EU-funded project

Heritage for the Living in the 'City of the Dead'.
