A Look at the City Alexandria, this ancient city that became full of many contradictions, we will know about the city and its contradictions through the eyes of deaf youth, they will present their opinion on their city through a collection of photographs, that they look at the city and the form of life within it. “A Look at the City” exhibition is a product of a workshop made especially to the youth of the deaf, to train them on photography through their mobile phones. Also at the workshop, several discussions and seminars were conducted with these young people about the city, form of living and the relationship between the people and their city, so that they could use the photograph as a form to express their opinion about the city and their personal relationship with it, and as a language of communication between them and their society, and between them and the world. And thus, every one of these youth took several photographs of the city, and the form of living within it, expressing his own vision of the city. “A Look at the City” is a project of Lab for Digital & Visual Arts initiative, Founded and managed by Waguih El Laqany Deaf Lab for Digital and Visual Arts - مختبر الصم للفنون الرقمية والبصرية
