In Cairo Diary, the first book in his City Diaries series, Peter Bialobrzeski documents everyday life in Egypt's capital city between the overthrowing of Morsi and Mubarak. Having expected to find signs of the "Arab Spring", Bialobrzeski instead found evidence of a different revolution. Driving in heavy traffic, he discovered that many Egyptians look at their phones while driving. Bialobrzeski wonders: "Is this what Western media are calling the 'Facebook Revolution'?".

The world-renowned photographer captures the architecture and people of Cairo during a period of major urban, social and political upheaval and renewal. Yet the photographs are not categorised by revolution, but of evolution. As Cairo embraces modernity, the relics of its rich cultural history share the stage with the marks of urban renovation and renewal.
