In Pictures: The Faces of a Fayoum Brick Factory on a Misty Winter Morning

Egypt is known to be the home to one of the seven world wonders, the Great Pyramid of Giza. But that’s not all the country is about, Egypt is filled with some amazing gems that are just out of this world! Today, we came across some really inspiring images of hard-working laborers at a brick factory in Fayoum, showing us what’s it like to work at such a unique place on a misty winter morning.

The details are incredible, with the men carrying the red bricks on their backs, placing them on carts dragged by horses, and collectively placing the bricks perfectly next to each other. The brilliant pictures were taken by a very talented photographer, Yehia Ahmed; make sure to follow him to see more of his work. And make sure you visit Fayoum soon if you haven’t already!
