Ever since I first had contact with stories, myths and legends of ancient Egypt, I meditated on who these people were. I saw myself in them, and wondered further if ever in history there was a passage between the horn of Africa and Eygpt.

Walking through the British Museum’s ancient Egypt collection, I couldn’t help but notice a resemblance with the hand painted figures in the stele stones. The figures looked so much like many of my family members. Not only in the way they dressed their hair or fabrics they used, but also in the daily objects used and the musical instruments they played.

I’ve had a curiosity in ancient Egyptian art and mythology for some time. I knew there must have been a relationship between them and the horn of Africa. Similarities didn’t satisfy me enough. I wanted to find evidence, and any traces left behind. It was in my deeper search that I stumbled upon the ancient Land of Punt.

These images are the beginning and an effort to connect the remaining fragments of this history. Old photographs are like a time capsule containing in them time, mortality and memory. I intend to explore how the past, present and future can simultaneously exists and how one can time travel though them.
