Rena Effendi: Neighbourhoods In Cairo

Life in a cobweb of Cairo’s alleys and corners: from the City of the Dead, the legendary expanse of cemeteries, where ghosts roam the streets at night.

People live here in Mameluk tombs, drying their laundry on graves, going about their everyday lives among the dead. To Boulac, the ancient port of Cairo, the artists’ low-rent neighborhood that wakes up after the sun goes down, its street cafes full of old wizards. To the wild and visceral Batn El-Bakara (The Belly of the Cow), a destitute dump populated by ceramic craftsmen.
