The children of Dahab, South Sinai are joyful, colourful and never camera-shy. During my time in Egypt they captured my heart more than anything else. Every day I would go for a walk and come across boys and girls, Bedouin and Egyptian, playing on the streets or at the beach. As soon as they saw me taking photographs they would gather their friends, run over and beg me to take more. This book is dedicated to all the beautiful children I met.
All photographs taken with the Apple iPhone 4 using the Hipstamatic and Leme Cam apps.
All profits from the sale of this book will be donated to a young epileptic boy in Dahab whose family cannot afford the treatment he urgently needs.
