The Passage gallery exhibits until December 11th Mère et fils (Mother and son) by Denis Dailleux, a photographer based in Cairo. Through the images of mothers and sons from Cairo, Denis Dailleux explores the intimate relationship between these two beings. With light strokes, the images deliver the feelings that animate them: pride, restraint, modesty, tenderness, sweetness. Thanks to a simple and constructed staging , Denis Dailleux puts time on hold, away from the chaos of the street and the political events which are shaking the country, to give a moving tribute to the mothers and sons of Egypt.
