A life scene, in all its contrasts, taken in Cairo from the car, leaving its historic area, for its contemporary urban city.
"The deal" represents three men and a goat: the owner and his employee, wearing traditional clothes, presenting a male goat to a potential buyer.
We can see in the background the new Cairo under construction and in the foreground, this scene with a herd of goats and a dwelling makeshift.

I am an artist painter and self-taught photographer. Born in Versailles and a native of Brittany - France. I work in Geneva – Switzerland.
I really enjoy having the flexibility of stretching my wings, in order to explore all the moments that life has to offer to photography.
I am specialized in capturing “the moment” in the course of life, more than fixed times. When I am taking photos, I have usually no expectations. I go fishing and I don't know what I will find.
To catch the decisive second that will make my photographs entrancing, when the moment is captured, causing an emotion, is my ultimate objective.
My ambition: to be witness of my time, to anticipate events with news photos, to inform the public and to raise awareness, with ethics.
