Sayeda - Women In Egypt
Between 2014 and 2016, photographer Amélie Losier travelled to Egypt several times. There she sought to discover what it is like to be a woman in Egypt today. “Sayeda” means “woman” in Arabic. Losier visited Cairo, Alexandria, and a few places in the countryside, meeting with women of different ages, social classes, familial status, and religion. She met the women at their homes, because she wanted them to feel confident in front of her camera. She asked questions and recorded what they told her, making a portrait in both words and image. She also took pictures in the streets and in public places, in order to better comprehend the everyday lives of the women.
