Andante: An Exhibition by Alex Majoli in Ravenna, Italy

I just saw this announcement for Alex Majoli’s exhibition in my FB feed. This is so amazing.

EGYPT. Cairo. November, 2011. Mohammed Mahmud is one of the main streets leading to Tahrir Square. This street will remain a memorable space for the revolution because it witnessed some of the most dramatic and violent moments this past November, December, and February, including the gassing, killing and disfiguration of hundreds of protesters by Egyptian police forces.In the aftermath of clashes between protesters and security forces that took place between 19 and 24 November 2011, Mohammed Mahmud Street witnessed the erection of a cement block-stones-wall that cuts it in the middle and separates it into two different areas.

The technical brilliance of the pictures is awesome but the emotional contents is overwhelming. I can cry when I see these pictures.

This is photography at it’s very best. I have some pictures of which I am really proud. But I am not sure whether I could ever compete with Alex.
