I'll Die For You | ongoing
I'll Die For You explores the intimate bond between man and land. Taking small farming as my focus, I am looking at what makes a farmer's life possible as well as impossible.
My paternal grandfather — Hussein, is my inspiration for this series. A humble farmer in Egypt’s Nile Delta, his devotion and reliance on his land for a livelihood eventually killed him. I see him in the farmers I photograph. This work is my attempt to celebrate his legacy.
