Since the advent of the Arab Spring, Magnum photographer Bieke Depoorter traveled to Egypt regularly. She invited herself into the homes of the Egyptians and photographed. In 2017 she returned with her prints and asked people to comment on them. Literally.
The overwritten photographs and the texts’ translations have been published in As it may be, available from Magnum Photos. (https://shop.magnumphotos.com/products/as-it-may-be-bieke-depoorter-signed-book?variant=3184373989400)
"The photo is being overwritten as if suddenly adding subtitles to a silent film. The shifting perspectives challenge the viewer. More than ever, the image becomes just one possible interpretation of reality, as it may be. It can no longer be considered the only fixed truth." ~ Ruth Vanderwalle
