When Egyptians began demonstrating against the regime of President Hosni Mubarak on 25 January 2011, few could anticipate that the demonstrations would grow into a revolution to astonish the world. Millions of Egyptians were soon joining in every day in cities across the country, but Tahrir Square became the beating heart of the revolution, its center, its life force, and its spirit, a spirit that was peaceful, inclusive, creative, and determined. Swedish photographer Mia Gröndahl returned day after day to the square, to record the incredible tent city within a city that would not budge until the president did, and to capture the great humanity of the revolution that impressed Cairo, Egypt, and the world. This book presents a selection of Mia's moving photographs from those historic days, along with the testimony in words of some of the people who were there.
Mia Gröndahl is a Swedish journalist based in Cairo, and the photographer of In Hope and Despair: Life in the Palestinian Refugee Camps (AUC Press, 2003) and Gaza Graffiti: Messages of Love and Politics (AUC Press, 2009). Ayman Mohyeldin, formerly Egypt correspondent for Al Jazeera English, is a foreign correspondent for NBC.
