I’ve been sending e-mails and letters to people regarding my project in Cairo. The people at Kids with Cameras responded first, and not only sent me one e-mail, but two! The second e-mail they sent me was forwarded from Teriz Michael, who worked with children in Garbage City:
I’ve heard that no one is allowed access or photography privileges in the city of the dead. there is such strong censorship in egypt…
zaballeen is so filthy that the police won’t go there and they let people resolve their own issues so photography there might be a little easier than city of the dead.
sorry I am not helpful.
get ready for endless dead ends.
Now I’m getting somewhere.
