I'll Die For You | *ongoing*
I’ll Die For You is a visual meditation on the bond between man and land. Choosing small farmers as my focus, I explore farming as a diminishing way of life — a consequence of persistent climatic variations, harsh physical & economic demands, its singular nature & a disposition towards urban living.
With underlined themes around identity, belonging, survival, love & ultimately beginnings & endings, I’ll Die For You meditates on a way of life where the fate of man & land is intertwined as one.
My paternal grandfather — Hussein, is my inspiration for this series. A farmer in Egypt’s Nile Delta, his devotion to his land eventually annihilated him. I see him in the farmers I photograph.
