    In capturing the photographic images of Egypt Raquib refers to the allegory of the myth of Osiris, an Egyptian God that has been dismembered by his brother and scattered throughout the land. The Exhibition attempts to “assemble” Egypt highlighting the physical natural beauty of its people and the landscape. The exhibition originated with an invitation by the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism to spend a month documenting the Eastern desert in Upper Egypt and an annual event, ”Characters of Egypt,” that hosted seven different Bedouin tribes from throughout Egypt. This commission has allowed the artist to immerse into the country’s fascinating past and divided present.
