Sweet Temptation.

Some examples of Egyptian photographer, artist and filmmaker Yousseff Nabil’s hand-tinted gelatin prints shown here, much of his work intended to evoke the look of old Egyptian films he saw in his youth. I’ve tried my hand at had tinting B&W prints with oils, the results pretty tragic, and have to marvel not only at his lens work but his deft hand with the subtle and effective coloring. I believe these come from Nabil’s 1997 “Sweet Temptation: Cairo” series.
