The work of Keiichi Tahara is a perpetual quest for light, the materialization of time. His path recently crossed the pyramids and the wonders of Luxor and Karnak, resulting in a series of beautiful photographs which plunge us into the mystery of ancient Egypt. The stones of yesterday capture shadows and light, bringing to life for an instant a vanished civilization, inviting us to take a journey through time. Locations include: Egyptian Museum, Cairo; Giza; Luxor; Karnak; Temple of Kom Ombo; Temple of Abu Simbel; Memphis; Aswan; and Dendara.

Egypt must surely be one of the most over-photographed countries in the world, but in this slim book by the Japanese photographer Tahara we are offered a startlingly original portrait of its ancient civilization. Tahara achieves this by avoiding the use of colour photography which the splendours of ancient Egypt seem almost to encourage, and recasting them instead in an austere and haunting black and white. His photographs are things of shadow and light: in Tahara's vision, the pyramids come to seem like things of natural rock, and the sand dunes of the deserts, like architecture. (Kirkus UK)
