Photographer's Note

Mural detail, City of the Dead, Cairo.

Like often happens in Egypt, ancient and contemporary live side by side.
The City of the Dead is both a cemetery and a neighbourhood of present day Cairo.
The living occupy the area and either built on top of or next to the resting place of the dead.
Hence this area being known as "City of the Dead".

Eerie for some, normal for just as many...
