Egypt Forever

by Patrick Longueville

Egypt Forever Synopsis

In Egypt Forever , photographer Patrick Longueville depicts the mysterious beauty of Egypt in the majesty of its ancient heritage and in the faces of its people. Showcasing over 120 black-and-white photographs, Egypt Forever alternates stunning images of architecture with close-up photographs from everyday life and haunting portraits of Egyptians. Longueville expresses in vivid detail his passion for Egypt, as well as his conviction that, like a thread running through its long history, Egypt has eternally preserved its unique characteristics. Arranged thematically in chapters such as Light, Wisdom, and Mediterranean, each one opening with a prose poem evoking Egypt's quiet charms, Egypt Forever invites readers to experience the timeless charm of Cairo, Luxor, and Alexandria and their inhabitants. Included too are an introduction by noted French artist Claude Bureau and an epilogue by Egyptian literary figure Mohamed Salmawy. Whether it's a view of Alexandrian fishermen wading into the sea, the intricate arabesque design on a mosque wall, or the smile of a girl in a headscarf, Egypt Forever is a visual love letter to Egypt's multifaceted beauty.
