The Road to Tahrir

Front Line Images by Six Young Egyptian Photographers (A Tahrir Studies Edition)

Sherif Assaf, Omar Attia, Timothy Kaldas, Rehab Khaled, Zee Mo, and Monir Al Shazly

A Publication of The American University in Cairo Press

As the 25 January Revolution got under way and grew from strength to strength, six young Egyptian photographers found themselves following and documenting the events in different parts of Cairo, and converging-as the demonstrations converged-on what became the focal point of the revolution, Tahrir Square. Between them they photographed many of the unprecedented and startling events around the city and in the square, from the early battles of the protesters against heavily armed security forces, through the attacks by paid thugs on camel and horseback, and the peaceful occupation of Tahrir Square, to the victory celebrations and the inspiring clean-up afterward.
