Sandland – Sharm el-Sheikh

(Project carried out in 2014)


When one thinks of Sharm el-Sheikh immediately comes to mind vacation in large villages, including beautiful beaches, wonderful sea reefs and unforgettable excursions.
But in Sharm el-Sheikh, off the tourist tracks, is lived in a world that seems post-apocalyptic.
From the desert land seem to flourish waste and carcasses, in silence, waiting for a hopeful second life.
What the tourism consumes and breaks, all seems to be on this land of sand that I wanted to call “Sandland”.
The disorder here is synonymous of life, of human presence, its real / fake residents. People from other Egyptian places who reside in Sharm only for work
