Western Desert Journey, Egypt

Amazing photographs of Egypt’s Western ‘White’ Desert

Geometry & Silence

These photographs document a trekking and 4×4 journey through the Western Desert of Egypt. Starting at Bahariya Oasis we travelled through the Sahara Suda (Black Desert) and Sahara Beida (White Desert) ending up near Farafra. As a compliment to these images I produced a second, more abstract series of photographs entitled “Sahara Sands” from the same trip.

The journey was undertaken with desert explorer Sam McConnell who runs highly recommended adventure travel expeditions to the region in collaboration with Abou Anis of Sub Sinai, off-road driver Khaled, and the bedouin of Bahariya Oasis

Signed limited edition prints of this series are available at £195 each (60x40cm). To purchase please contact me. Larger sizes also available

Edit: I’m delighted that this post is featured in Freshly Pressed. Check out “Glimpses Of Iran” which was Freshly Pressed last year. Thanks for all your likes and comments and follow my Facebook…

  1. – Oh my goodness. Glad I went thrguoh all of the images, even if this was the last on the list as this is definitely the best. I\’ve tried macros like this. One, they\’re hard and two, even if you successfully capture them, well, then the hue/tone seems to be lacking. This is pinsharp and full of vibrance.

  3. Glad you like Quintin’s photographs from our trip to the Western Desert. You may have seen from my website that for the last six years I have been running schools expeditions in the Sinai with my Egyptian business partner. Sadly the security situation there is such that it is no possible to do so, Hence our visit to the White Desert, as an alternative location.
