Artist workshop from April 7th to 17th - Exhibition until April 28th

Under the aegis of H.E. Farouk Hosni, Minister of Culture of Egypt and with the patronage of H.E. Adil Labib, Governor of Alexandria, the ECUME(s) Alexandria and Marseille organise the 3rd Mediterranean Photo Workshop of Alexandria. From April 7th to 17th, 10 photographers from France, Italy, Tunisia, Syria and Egypt will come together in Alexandria. The pictures they take during these ten days will then be collectively exhibited at the Atelier of Alexandria until April 28th.



Ten professional Mediterranean photographers will gather in Alexandria for a ten-day workshop: Abdalah Dustashy, Eslam Kamal, Sabry Abo Egalah and Lila Hassan from Alexandria, Mohammed Ardash and Maryam Hassan from Cairo, Marc Chostakoff from Marseille, Lotfi Ghariani from Tunis, Stefanaia Schubeyr from Genoa and Hossein Soufan from Damascus.




It is the atmosphere of this mythic place which will guide the artistic choice. The sound of the urban transports never leaves the walker on its way over ancient Roman ruins to be found in the city. Buildings in European-style architecture exhibit their fading charm alongside with obviously modern constructions. While the crowd is wandering up and down the Corniche, one can halt to have a shisha or some tea at one of the numerous cafes, listening to the muezzin and his mystic songs. Each photographer will show a different vision of Alexandria, trying to seize a part of its myth, its cosmopolitan heritage, its richly contrasted atmosphere. Artistic counsellor: Marc Heller, photographer from Aix-en-Provence.



Opening – April 17th at 7.00 p.m.

The opening of the will be a public event, displaying a panel of works of contemporary Mediterranean photographers from different countries on the same object: the city of Alexandria.


Exhibition – until April 28th

The exhibition of the works at the Atelier of Alexandria will last twelve days. Information documents on the workshop, the participating artists and the artistic approach will be available for the public.
