Sofa’s can be found in the most random places all over Middle East.
– Cairo –
If you have a walk in Cairo, you’ll certainly notice sofas scattered all over the city. They become so usual to your sight that I’ve never really taken them in consideration until I started photographing them. Since then, they’ve become my obsession.
Sofas in Cairo aren’t a simple piece of furniture, they embody urban and cultural aspects.
Positioned in the streets, they’re part of the urban environment; real life scenographies that give life to street scenerios. In my opinion they express very well Cairene’s outgoing nature.
This is a long term project, I’m planning to continue “Sofa culture” in my next trips in Middle East.
