VIDEO: Karim El-Hayawan’s ‘Cairo Cacophony’ Is the Definition of Art
Cairo is a very large, diverse and sophisticated city, where you can literally see art wherever you go. Egyptian street photographer, Karim El-Hayawan, gathered some of the city’s upcoming artists — from Menna Diaby to Reem Osama and much more — to create a wonderful masterpiece that perfectly showcases the C-town: Cairo Cacophony.
“Cairo Cacophony is a video piece comprised of screens showing a number of images captured by El-Hayawan during his walks observing, dissecting and deconstructing the complexities of the ever-expanding urban metropolis,” the caption for the video says on Vimeo.
Cairo Cacophony – 2017 is a part of the Contemporary Arab Photography Biennale at the Institut Du Monde Arabe.
