Before Egypt exhibition
Before Egypt was an exhibition focusing on the Predynastic and Early Dynastic era of ancient Egyptian history; the time before pharaonic rule.
The exhibition was curated by the Garstang Museum of Archaeology and hosted by their sister museum the Victoria Gallery and Museum in 2019. It featured objects from both their collection and others around the UK.
The objects I photographed for the exhibition aren’t like those you’d usually imagine when you think of ancient Egypt. My subjects were predominantly ceramic and stone pots, along with flint and stone tools, ivory figurines, beads and greywacke cosmetic palettes.
