Prayer time in the streets of Cairo, Egypt, on a Friday around midday. Mats are laid out on the street, and prayers are broadcast out over loudspeakers.

Henri Cartier-Bresson's work inspires me to look at the world with an open mind and to document moments of life and culture, with an artistic vision in mind. His iconic photograph of Islamic pilgrims bending over in worship to Allah has always been a striking image to me and while travelling through Egypt I always hoped to capture such a moment of devotion.
