On this web site I use a number of photos that I took during my years in Cairo, or were taken by my daughter Sophie in 2005 and 2010. I also use photos by permission from friends like Abdelrahman Mustafa, Yasmine Perin, Malak Rushdy, and cartoonist Carlos Latuff. In addition, I have frequently used photographs whose provenance is unclear. I honor and respect those unknown photographers and graphic artists for their awesome work. By using these images, I might very well have messed up and broken a few intellectual property laws. I do not want the FBI or Egypt’s Ministry of Culture to show up at my office. If I have messed up your life by using a photo or other image that belongs to you, let me know and I’ll remove it.
