I WON'T LET YOU DIE
Youssef Nabil, 2008
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.
