AUC Avenue, P.O. Box 74, New Cairo, 11835, Egypt


The Photographic Gallery in the Department of Journalism and Mass Communication presents The Longing of the Stranger Whose Path Has Been Broken, a solo exhibition/ collaborative project led by documentary photographer Rehab Eldalil. 

This long-term project reflects what it means to be a Bedouin in contemporary times. Over a span of 10 years, Eldalil collaborated with the Bedouin community of South Sinai, Egypt, to explore the notions of belonging and interconnectedness between people and land while reconnecting with her own indigenous ancestry. This approach culminated in a body of work that celebrates the indigenous experience by acknowledging the community’s voice and collaboration in the creative process. The exhibition showcases a complementary collection of photographs, poetry, embroidered photographs, and video. 

The Longing of the Stranger Whose Path Has Been Broken was developed under AFAC and Magnum Foundation’s ADPProgram 2020 and National Geographic Society’s Emergency Grant for Journalists 2020. The project was published as a book in early 2023 and is available for sale worldwide.

Rehab Eldalil is a documentary photographer, visual storyteller and educator based in Egypt. Her work focuses on the broad theme of identity explored through participatory creative practices. She has worked on personal projects and with NGOs and publications documenting human interest stories in the SWANA region since 2013. Recipient of multiple prestigious awards, including the Creative Activism Award 2021, FotoEvidence W Award 2022, World Press Photo Regional Award 2022, Premi Albert Camus Award 2022 and Photo Frome Photobook Award 2023. Her work has been exhibited worldwide.
