The New Suez Canal
by Paradox
Landscape and architecture photographer Luuk Kramer, and portrait photographer Ringel Goslinga worked in Egypt in May and early June 2015 to record the construction as well as the people behind it. The work was carried out by 2,000 people from 45 nationalities, working ashore or on board of the 28 vessels that were deployed. Without the presence of both photographers the construction of the new canal, some 150 years after the initial construction by De Lesseps, would have remained almost invisible as only few photographers were allowed to work in the highly sensitive economic and military area bordering the Sinai desert.

The resulting photographs have been published in The New Suez Canal – A challenge in time, a photobook made in commission for the consortium partners.
