There has been a surge of high-quality photographers in Egypt, and many of them are sharing their work on Instagram. I started with a list of 50 Egyptian photographers on Instagram and edited it to 15 that I feel have something unique to say about Egypt and the world through their photography. Of course, it’s just my opinion, but these are some of the best photographers in Egypt.
Most of these photographers range between editorial photojournalism and artistic photography.
Ahmed Gaber – Shoots gritty images of everyday life in Egypt.
Ahmed Jamal – Posts interesting triptych, sometimes reimagining and sometimes reinforcing the visual cliches of Cairo.
Hesham Elsherif – Unique photos of everyday life in Cairo and its rural areas.
Salih Bashier – Works between Sudan and Cairo, especially his recent work on the Sudanese revolution.
Amr Alfiky – Egyptian photojournalist, based in New York, a fellow at the @nytimes
