On November 15 2017, The Photographic Gallery at The American University in Cairo is hosting a photographic exhibition by Armand Arzrouni entitled "Studio Armand: The Art of Wedding Portraiture". Arzrouni is a Swiss-Armenian photographer who worked in his father’s photography studio downtown Cairo between 1961-2007. Both father and son specialized in portrait photography, carving a lucrative niche market photographing wedding portraits, which became highly sought after by the Egyptian middle and upper classes. Some of the photos on display are from Armand’s father Armenak Arzrouni. This exhibition is co-curated by Ahmed Safyeldi. The photographer will be present at the opening reception, which will be on Wednesday November 15, 2017 at 1pm.
