@luisfabini over here waking up in Uruguay. This is my friend Emilio Lopez – a gaucho. Gauchos wake up before dawn to drink mate and eat some asado, preparing for a long day of work in the campo. #cowboysoftheamericas #luisfabini #burndiary #pueblogarzon #mate #gauchos #burnmagazine #newbook

Portrait

Edit this
@luisfabini over here! A couple days ago I started taking self-portraits. I’d never done it before. I’m playing with light while composing with myself. Seeing myself is a bit weird but it reveals and shows me…me.It’s fun.#burndiary #burnmagazine #pueblogarzon #luisfabini #selfportrait

Face

A paper showing a photo of a dead person and describing what he was wearing and asking if anybody recognize him, is hanged all over the neighborhood streets by the police. It made everybody suspicious because the police never done that before. Maybe they killed him. Amr Dabees.

Island

Edit this
Today i went to zamlek,a bourgeois island full of privileged foreigners and rich eyptian bastards, anyway i went to visit an exhibition at a new gallery there and it was my first time to visit this place..and then there was this scene where a blonde elite eyptian women (discovered later that she is the owner of the place) ordering a black guy to open the windows (discovered later that his name is samuel and he is working for her and he left sudan few years ago )….and then all i kept thinking about if i am racist to see this scene in this way?? Maybe i knew too much about the all saints church in zamlek that help the christian refugees to find jobs? Why is it famous only in zamlek??why is it famous among the foreigners and rich people??maybe they feel guilty that they have privilege and alot of money and want to share a little of it?? Maybe when they meet at night on some high rooftop they show off with their sudanese or nubian maids like old times in egypt?? Maybe the refugees in egypt have the “foreigners complex” ??maybe egyptians have it too?? Maybe im crazy and racist??maybe im class conscious??maybe all of this happenes in my head?? Maybe the westernization ruined all of us?Maybe racism is a western thought?? I need to eat before this thoughts eat me ….anyway then i left the gallery for a fast lunch at some fancy restaurant with a great view over the great nile… And while im entering the restaurant i found a big notification written in english that there is a minimum charge 200 Egyptian pound per person …so i opened my wallet and found only 100 which i had to live with it for a few days so I turned back and left and then I remembered that i didnt take a photo of the nile so i started searching for the great egyptian nile that they talk about everywhere.Amr Dabees
