SIDEWALK SALON: 1001 STREET CHAIRS OF CAIRO. Manar Moursi. Onomatopee, Eindhoven, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 264 pp. 25 x 19 cm. ISBN 9789491677397 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Sidewalk Salon is a multidisciplinary exploration of Cairo's dynamic urban spaces as portrayed by its thousands of street chairs, local fiction, interviews and poetry. The images, gathered over three years and organized into two sections -- walks and series -- document the creativity and small improvisations that give Cairo its distinctive character and identity. Strictly speaking, the book is a photographic essay of original chairs, but in a larger sense it reveals the material and human dimensions of the vibrant and extemporaneous layer that exists between this city's buildings and its streets. In addition to over 400 Polaroid images, the publication features fiction and poetry commissioned from Egyptian writers, plus interviews with street chair owners. From fruit sellers to poets sitting in Tahrir Square, each reveals their own perspective of a city in flux. Writings by Yasser Abd El Latif, Taher al Sharqawy, Maged Zaher, Mohamed Al Fakhrani and Amira Hanafy.
