Magnum photographer Bieke Depoorter has established an intimate way of photographing people in their homes – she asks her subjects, whom she would meet and approach on the street, if it would be possible to stay the night with them. During her stay makes the photographs. Women, their husbands and children shared their daily life, their food and even their bed with Depoorter – this engagement is truly important to her. It is this intimate series of photographs that is presented in As It May Be.
Depoorter returned to the people she photographed with a book dummy of As It May Be. This opened a dialogue with Egyptians of all ages, opinions and religions, giving them a voice in the book in the form of hand written Arabic annotations. English translations of these are presented in a 66 page insert.
