Fish Market in Suez city- Ahmed Taha- via Egypt Again project
CAIRO – 25 August 2017: The seaport city of Suez, is understandably most known for the Suez Canal, but a photography initiative is revealing more to the city than the famous waterway.
In an attempt to reveal the beauty of every Egyptian city parallel to the mainstream images of the country, Alexandria-based Adasa Photography Club launched Egypt Again project in 2016 to document landmarks and the everyday life across the lenses of its talented photographers. Their pictures of Suez show an old city, an intriguing fish market of a port city and a heavenly sunset.

A “new Suez Canal” was inaugurated in 2015, allowing ships to cross the canal in both directions at the same time, rather than berthing the ship until another one crosses in the opposite direction. The Suez Canal Axis project will be completed in 2030, and it is expected to bring major investments into the city.
