I Won't Let You Die
The Third Line was proud to host the Middle East launch of Youssef Nabil's latest artist book, I won't let you die. Nabil’s signature approach to portraiture blends photography and painting in an evocation of an era long passed – Cairo’s golden age of cinema.
With 272 pages and 137 color illustrations, the book features text by the artist, as well as an extended essay from art critic and curator Octavio Zaya, and conversations between the artist and three of his former subjects: Iranian photographer and filmmaker Shirin Neshat, Egyptian painter Ghada Amer, and Egyptian actress Faten Hamama.
I Won't Let You Die was published by Hatje Cantz with support by The Third Line.
English, hardcover. ISBN: 978-3-7757-2306-0.
