Photo and caption by Markus Alpstaeg

During March 2012, I went to a trip to the white desert in Egypt which included a visit to Cairo and the surrounding areas. Near the ancient site of the Sakkara Pyramids I had the opportunity to shoot the portrait of this traditional young girl. Her magnificent eyes are looking into an unknown future in times where political changes are taking place in this country. I wonder what her future might be…

Location: Egypt, near Sakkara Pyramids
