The Photographic Gallery in cooperation
with The Rare Books and Special Collections Library
February 5 - March 1, 2012
 On February 5, 2012 The Photographic Gallery in cooperation with the Rare Books and Special Collections Library at The American University in Cairo will feature a special photographic exhibition by one of Egypt's greatest photographers entitled “Van-Leo: A Rare Look”.

Since the beginning of World War II, Armenian photographer Van-Leo photographed Egyptian stars, artists, poets, cabaret entertainers and Western visitors- all drawn to his studio by the lure of his glamorous portraits; by the implicit promise to be photographed in the highly stylized, theatrical manner of Hollywood movie stars of the nineteen twenties and thirties.

 Van-Leo’s work, which includes portraits of Taha Hussein, Omar El Sherif, Farid El Attrash, Mariam Fakhr El Din, Muhammad Abdel Wahab, Dalida, Youssef El Sebai, and Roushdy Abaza as well as unique views of Cairo and the pyramids, will be on display at The photographic Gallery from February 5 until March 1, 2012.
The Photographic Gallery is located at AUC New Cairo (Abdul Latif Jameel Hall, Plaza Level.) Gallery hours are Sunday through Thursday, 10 am to 4 pm.
