Photographer Revaluates Power Dynamics via Intimate Portraiture
For the past 9 years, French native Denis Dailleux has been based in the heart of Egypt. Within the confines of Cairo, his photographs of city life focus on everything from rickshaw drivers to memorials for revolutionaries. However, his personal work strays away from the streets and into the homes of physically imposing men. Juxtaposed with their aging matriarchs, shroud in hijabs and flowing veils, these portraits make up the photographic series Mother and Son.
