My photo essay assignment is related to a family memory, a sort of an annually tradition that takes place in my grandparents house. Although its a national holiday that dates back to the pharaonic era and most of Egyptians celebrate the tradition till now. Yet, its something else in my family in the sense that we do all gather in one house unconsciously every year without thinking about it, to do the same thing systematically. Starting with the servant that would go to the market to buy the salted fish, to my mother, aunt and uncle that come on Sham El Nessim day without invitation ready for the banquet. Even the kids who don't like the smell and keep making fun of how can we possibly eat the smelly fish are part of the tradition through sitting all on the same table.
