Egypt, Mother and Son
2nd prize with his story “Mother and Son” in the 2014 World Press (category Staged Portraits).
Tenderness. Denis Dailleux, who has been living in Cairo for 9 years, never stops showing the generosity of the Egyptian people he fell in love with fifteen years ago. No doubt the series “Mother and son” is his most personal work.
With great reserve and refinement, he leads us into the privacy of these families, where the absolute love of the muscular son echoes like an ode to their mothers. An ode universally moving.
