Day 1~ March 1st~ Egypt
Egypt, 1996, armed with a Pentax, 36 rolls of film, a total fascination with mystery, and an eagerness to jump into the unknown, is where I first began my love affair with photography. Egypt and what lives in it gave me far more than I expected in way of impressions, awe inspiring monuments, mystery, intrigue, and a deepening in my belief that we know so little of what is still to be discovered in the history of this planet.
No matter how many books you read, how much information you gather, nothing can prepare you for your first meeting with the massive pyramids at Giza, or the tombs of the valley of the kings, or the astounding statues that still stand in great defiance of time in the temples of Ancient Egypt.
For the second month of this project I will dive back into the unknown that is ancient Egypt, through film images taken more than 15 years ago and contemplations that never lessened in intensity but have only deepened and grown.
