This morning I saw Newsweek’s gallery of remarkable images Alex Majoli took in Cairo last week: “The Agony and the Ecstasy”. A few minutes later I got an email from a friend at Cesuralab inviting me to look at a series of pictures by photographer Gabriele Micalizzi also from Egypt. We’ve written about the collective Cesuralab before, including an interview from last year, and their art director is Majoli. But Micalizzi’s work is also tremendous. I’ve been waiting to see work like this from Cairo.
Be sure to check out Micalizzi’s other projects, including his recent work in Tunisia and pictures from the Bangkok Turmoils on the Cesuralab site. Newsweek also recently published a portfolio of Alex Majoli’s work from Tunisia “Postcards from a Revolution”, and a joint gallery of Alex Majoli and Paolo Pellegrin in Egypt from before Mubarak’s abdication. Clever, these Italians. Terrific work all around.
