In 2002, I live in the city center of Cairos. Everyday, I go out for a stroll to understand this city. To show and reveal what I can see, I take pictures of humans, animals, houses and roads. I hide in my hand a small digital camera and shoot pictures without thinking. The subjects do not know they are photographed, they cannot compose their characters. This technique allows me not to compose a sophisticated picture.
