Meetings with the inhabitants of the City of the Dead - The monumental cemetery of Cairo, Al Qarafa, is an anomaly in the urban area of the city. For the citizens of Cairo it is a foreign entity, but for those who inhabit it, it is where they live. The architectures of the mausolea and the sepulchres of the deceased bring together the paths, the fragrances and objects of the occupants. Their life stories, their experiences and their adventures fill the space with a completely new meaning as occupation is transformed into housing and living.
