Higher Power - قوة عليا


Published in 2020 ( Contemporary Image Collective, Cairo), Arabic (Egyptian Dialect) & Visual language, No ISBN, 5 Pages + Cover, Limited Edition of 35. 

Higher Power is a silk-screen loose-leaf artist publication in an edition of 35. The work is a collaboration between myself and Poet Ryma Jalil, where we hand-printed my photography and her poetry onto each poster. Higher Power uses 4 different mixes/ shades of blue and 2 shades/ mixes of green recalling in an almost monochromatic manner colors of the sea.

Copies of the publication were exhibited and sold at the Temporary Gathering Zine Fair, an event at the culmination of Temporary Gathering, a workshop and working group on self publishing at Contemporary Image Collective, Cairo. A display copy of Higher Power is now part of the artist books collection of Contemporary Image Collective Libarary, a few copies for sale are still available there as well.
