History Seekers

In Egypt, the whole archaeological world, and all the tourism that it creates, rests on the shoulders of local diggers. Any western archaeologist that wants to succeed, has to hire a local team of diggers to get the actual digging done proper and accurately. They know the field and can recognize a piece of sarcophage in the middle of a rubble mountain from a 10m distance. With this portrait serie I want to take a close look at those who do the dirty job. Those whose names are never on the news when a fabulous treasure is found. I like to call them HISTORY SEEKERS, for this is what they do: find pieces of History.
