Egypt. Cairo. 2012. (Translation of the written text below) - My dad's always sitting like this. - Papa says: this man is broke. - The picture is wrong, because the picture was taken of t
he woman while she was sleeping. - How did he agree to let his wife be photographed like this? - ln our culture, when a visitor comes to the house, they have to wait to give people the chance to make themselves decent. - Very good. - ls this one picture or two? - When a visitor comes to the house and the man of the house is not present, they are not allowed to enter the house. - She is sad because papa took the remote. - When there are conflicts between the mother and the father, it affects the children. - This is the deepest picture. - There are a lot of things we don't have, there's a lot on our mind, but we just say: "Leave it to God".
