Feras by mhazzaa Feras by mhazzaa
Feras is my Syrian friend. We met at a shisha place and he showed me around Damascus. He fought with me whenever the cheque came because he insists that he has to pay. It always was a scene; an Egyptian and a Syrian pulling the cheque and each other.

He is a blend of old tradition and modernity. Sometimes he is caught in a conflict between his legacy and his daily life.

Cairo is overwhelming, if you check the photos of magnum taken in Cairo you would think they are lame.

yea there was this recent essay for example on Muslim youth or progressive Islam done by a very generally good photographer (her name was Lisa something ). But she just failed to nail it. No spirit, she was overwhelmed.
