Photographs Capture Reactions as Spider-Man Comes to Egypt
A question popped into a group of friends’ minds and they decided to see the answer for themselves: “What if Spiderman landed in Egypt?!”
In a photo session, they spotted peoples’ reaction towards having a superhero sharing their normal life events with them and facing what they typically deal with.
“We struggle in everything we do in Egypt in a way that even if a superhero came he wouldn’t be able to handle it,” said Hossam Atef the photographer of the session. “And that’s what I wanted to deliver with these pictures I took and their ideas.”
The 20 year-old student in the Faculty of Tourism and Hotel Management took photos in several areas around Cairo including Bolak El-Dakrour, Downtown, and El-Sayeda Zeinab, to capture how people would deal with his friend dressed in a Spiderman costume.
