The Mother of the World as seen through the lens of French photographer Jean Pierre Ribire and the pen of Egyptian writer Sonallah Ibrahim. The result is a rich and highly original portrait of a city. Ribire's seventy powerful photographs capture fugitive moments in urban life and architecture, in which historic grandeur meets modernity in a race with time. Meanwhile, Sonallah Ibrahim's incisive exploration of Cairo's past and his own past reveals a man living on the edge of a city living on the edge of itself.
Born in Cairo and trained as a lawyer, Ibrahim chose a career of journalism. He was imprisoned for five years (1959--64) because of his political activities. In 1968 he went to Lebanon, then to East Berlin, and later to Moscow, where he studied cinema.
