Photo series by photographer Jason Larkin explores spaces that preserve the past in Egypt.

This series focuses on the museums of Egypt and the different styles used in curating and presenting the past to audiences. Using space, materials and design, curators can venerate events, revere heroes, and imbue history with a sense of grandiosity. Through the aesthetics of the displays, museums and their curators help the public understand history, but more importantly, reveal and mould Egypt’s identity.
