Photo Exhibit Statement: Shadi Rahimi

I spent seven months in Egypt witnessing a generation resist for ideas that had shifted from concept to demand: Freedom. Justice. Equality. Democracy. I'm sharing a selection of moments to take you beyond the headlines to feel why some are sacrificing it all for a different tomorrow.

The title of this exhibit is inspired by a slogan spray-painted with a boy tossing a tear gas canister. The boys on the front lines are the subject of our documentary - Boys of the Bullet - which all photo sales will help fund. Donations also collected for Egyptian nonprofits aiding the injured and documenting events on the ground.

Exhibit dates: May 26 - June 11, 2012

Rising From Tahrir: Hoda Rashad

Hoda Rashad is an American/Egyptian dual national and has been an English language teacher and curriculum consultant for the past 12 years. Prior to the revolution, Rashad operated a humanitarian organization NIYAA (National Institute for Youth and Adult Activities) in Egypt.

During the revolution, Rashad was involved with people at the forefront of the protests. During the days of the occupation of Tahrir (Liberation) Square, she wrote a non-political blog under the pseudonym Salma Mokadem, reporting on the dramatic events that were taking place as they occurred (http://www.egyptsliberationlive.blogspot.com). She began working on this book shortly after President Mubarak abdicated his presidency in February of 2011.
