Worth a look: Ed Ou’s Egyptian Youth

Ed Ou - Egyptian Youth

Longtime dvafoto favorite Ed Ou‘s ongoing project, Egyptian Youth, is a fascinating look at one of the driving forces behind current Egyptian politics. Much of the work has been published over by the New York Times over the past year, and collected in a recent video produced for the paper with Ben Solomon, but the best place to see the work is on Ou’s own website. The essay both looks at the role of youth in recent protests and uprisings gives the viewer a glimpse into the everyday lives of these people who are both transforming their country and caught in the middle of unprecedented change. It’s well worth a look.
