For over ten times I've been to Egypt, my first visit was in the early eighty's. Those where the days. In 1985 I married my Egyptian husband Romani, in Cairo.
27 imagesThe loss of a son. Medo died in a motorbike accident in Cairo, he had just turned eighteen. The loss of a son is something you cannot describe with any words. Sanaa is my sister in law, we love each other very much. I asked her if it was ok to shadow her, maybe we could both find some relief in this? I bought Sanaa a digital photo album and stored all the photos on it. She played it day and night. It was such an intense experience and I am also grateful that the family trusted me to document their grief. We will always miss you Medo. Nag Hamadi, Egypt 2011. ©Ingetje Tadros
109 imagesFarrah, an Egyptian Wedding. Even though a Wedding Photographer was organised I proposed to do the 'unofficial' photo work, behind the scenes, which I prefer much better. And it gives the viewer the opportunity to see how an Egyptian wedding is organised.

I have so many photo's, photo albums and now digital images, it's not funny anymore. This is only a small selection and a loose edit. ©Ingetje Tadros
