The People Is Singular, by local poet Andy Young and Egyptian photographer Salwa Rashad, is a personal response to the Egyptian Revolution. Rashad’s vision includes everyday people—Muslims and Christians, young and old, the foregrounded and the peripheral. Her perspective is from inside the events as they unfolded. Andy Young, a New Orleans poet married to an Egyptian writer, followed the events from across the world. Both lyric and documentary, Young’s poetry reflects her experience as a sympathizer and as a distant, passionate observer.
