  1. Unbelievable and senseless carnage. What a shame.

  2. Somehow “Like” seems inappropriate. These are very moving photos that tell a story. I pray they remind me of more than one thing and how that should affect my priorities. Thank you for posting.

  3. Wow, I was tempted to just hit ‘Like’ and leave it at that, but I can’t hit the like button. I don’t ‘Like’ the senseless carnage, but I do like your photographic portrayal of it

  10. So tragic, and incredibly enraging. SO much senseless violence.

  11. As Rodney King said, “Why we just get along?”

  12. Tragic what is happening on your side of the world. Very good first hand presentation of the events. Stay safe.

  13. I grieve with the people of Egypt. Powerful photos.

  14. This is plain painful. Why, what does it accomplish? I am sure we all can come up to reasons but the dead are dead and do not want reasons.

    Thank you for sharing the picture. So very sad.

  17. I feel so sorry. I commend you for your efforts.

  18. Beyond shocking. It is mythic like those stories about the sultan who invited everyone to a banquet and then slaughtered everyone. This is the kind of epic wrong doing that will live on. Other heartbreaking disasters have been worse. But this was a willful and thought out massacre in the mold of Stalin, and Hitler, Cortez and Nero.

    I noticed that the photographs of the twenty-five corpses found under the pulpit have been conveniently left out, in addition to the cases of molotov cocktails, gas masks, etc.

  20. How sad, this cruel destruction of peaceful protest. Seems that they can’t destroy people’s will to fight for democracy.

    August 17, 2013 at 11:32 AM

    • .

      it was not that peaceful but i am not justifying the killing “its a massacre by all means”

      August 17, 2013 at 2:05 PM

      • it’s hard to see from here what is happening. did the protestors then also use a lot of violence? the newspapers here claimed it was mostly peaceful, so thats not true? it also said that attacks from protesters were condemned by the muslim brotherhood. anyway, the situation seems very complicated, it shows its not black and white, because how democratic was morsi? however, it’s still an army against a group right?

  21. Tragic and evocative. Conveys the horror of injustice in a way that news coverage never does.

  23. OOh! I’m aware of what’s happening there in Egypt, and your pics depicts how terrible it is there to lose life. I hope it ends soon. I pray to God to let peace prevail.

    August 17, 2013 at 5:31 PM

  24. I agree, it was hard to “like” but I decided the like was for the photographs, he collage and the reporting of what is a great sadness that human beings can do this to one another. I pray there will be a solution soon.

    August 17, 2013 at 5:32 PM

  25. I also hope that this tragedy does not happen again. I hope that through these photos, people get to understand that our actions can cause other people pain and heartache. Luckily, we can also act differently to produce joy and harmony. Keep on showing the world what it needs to see!

  26. I almost feel bad saying that these are fantastic pictures in the sense that they put you right there, in the middle of the conflict, but they are fantastic pictures. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words and images like these really make that statement ring true.

    I’m going to be following this blog from now on and I hope that you can find the time to check out my blog and perhaps follow me as well. I attempt to do with words what you so aptly accomplish with photography.

  27. please stay safe.

  28. Condolences go out to all of the families of innocent lives lost because of greed. Very tragic turn of events. I’ve experienced this feeling when Libya was under attack by its own tyrant, and it was terrifying to say the least. Destroying religious buildings is unacceptable. Sisi is no better than Mubarak. The oppressed sacrificing blood in the streets while the oppressor drinks it out of the tap. Victory will be gained. Freedom will be back. “With every pharaoh, comes a Moses.”

  29. Wow, I’d been hearing that things were going on over there but there aren’t many photos. The one with the air freshener takes it to a whole new level of understanding how bad it must be. Thank you!

  30. heart rendering images.

    August 19, 2013 at 2:25 PM

  31. One can’t help but feel this didn’t need to happen.

  32. Reblogged this on just a student blogger.

  33. Images tell so much more than words. These take the viewer to the heart of this horrific conflict. Thank you for sharing and opening peoples eyes to how bad this is.

    August 20, 2013 at 1:21 PM

  37. I fail to find words to articulate my emotions against the massacre that happened recently. I hope it settles down soon.

    August 20, 2013 at 1:55 PM

  38. these photos say so much. I wish that the people of Egypt manage to find peace within their land. It’s so sad.

    I can’t imagine how difficult it must have been for you to take these photos but you’re doing your country and people proud through your courage to bring the truth to the world. I don’t know if it will make any difference truly but we all have to do whatever good we are capable of in aid of our loved ones. You’re an amazing photographer and no doubt a very resilient person. Stay strong and persistent, a great many a Muslim and non-Muslim is praying for you. Inshallah Egypt will be delivered from these trying times into a brighter dawn.

    I don’t want to ‘like’ this, it feels disrespectful. However I want to say thank you for publishing the photos. It is so important there is at least some remembrance and recognition of these shocking events. Australian news stopped covering the events in Egypt after two days.

  43. man’s inhumanity to man…and women…and children

  44. It is possible to be sad for people with whom you don’t agree.
