The further I got away, the more I felt closer to my family. The distance helped me see the oblivious in our relationship to one another, especially how my parents’ relationship used to be; how it is now. I find the melancholy that arose in our family too beautiful not to capture and I wanted to connect it with my general view on Egypt. With every picture I took of them I felt closer and more intimate than in the absence of my camera. It’s like they wanted to be noticed. The project, translated “The Soliman Family In Egypt”, has enriched my passion for documenting my family and has gotten me closer to my home, even if it has changed.
