Photographer's Note

Outside Al Hussein mosque, in the district known as "Islamic Cairo," as the faithful gather in the evening, a man sells drinks, a boy sells bread, and a woman watches over one of them (or maybe over both.)

Islamic Cairo is named for the Islamic period, when it was the heart of the city--roughly the same as medieval times in Europe. Al Hussein Mosque was built in 1154.
