VIBRANCY: The people of Cairo
Cairo, Egypt 2014. After `The arab uprising´
In the aftermath of the arab uprising the inhabitans of Cairo is struggling hard. The uprising began in 2011 with massive protests against president Hosni Mubarak. People were tired of the run-down economy, high unemployment, low income, high taxes, inflation of food prices, human rights violation and political corruption. In June 2012 Mubarak was judged to life sentence in prison for corruption and human rights violations. Muhammad Mursi and the Freedom and Justice Party was elected for president but new protests began and 2013 the military (once more) took control of the parlament. In May 2014 Abdal Fatah al-Sisi was elected as a new president for the country. Three years of domestic conflicts has scared the tourists away, a major income for a majority of the inhabitans in Cairo. Now people are struggeling maybe even more than before the uprising started. I spent some time in Cairo 2014 photographing and talking to people.
