This final section reconsiders what decoloniality may offer in the context of Egypt. In this sense the photographic image is seen in a new light as a mediation between colonial legacies, nationalist strategies and the potential of decolonializing aesthetics to frame the image as part of a homegrown culture. Moreover, Egypt’s visual culture is a creative expression of its own value codes in the contemporary paradigm, on its own terms, and can authenticate a non-Western visual history which refutes Orientalist trajectories. The book discusses the critical debates on decoloniality theory as a way to rethink local cultural sensibilities and look forward to interpret the forces latent within the photographic image in Egypt.
