2006 International Photography Exhibition
“Maha and Ahmad"
Location: Cairo, Egypt
Photographer: Noha Ghany
Category: People
Award: Honorable Mention

In the photographer's words: "Maha and Ahmad are the daughter and son of a local street vendor who have the most grateful faces I have ever seen. These are two street kids that “live” in my neighborhood in Cairo. They were born into a life a poverty in a society filled with class divisions yet they are thankful for all they have. These little angels had never had their photo taken before. They touched me and I chose to take their picture."
