Pascal Meunier is a documentary photographer based in Paris. For fifteen years, he has reported on cultural traditions from Mauritania to Malaysia, passing through Iran, Libya, Yemen, and Egypt. His latest photographic works relate mainly to the culture of Arab-Muslims, a world that is much talked about today, but mostly misunderstood. He does not concentrate on current events of a political nature, but prefers to show the intrinsic culture of the country instead. One of his aims is to capture heritage and traditions that are swiftly vanishing like the last public baths of Cairo or the island of Lamu. Beyond sounding the alarm, Pascal shows a Muslim world in change, overtaken by modernity, but increasingly anxious to preserve its values.
