We had the pleasure of interviewing Getty Reportage/NY Times photographer Ed Ou after his World Press Photo winning coverage of refugees in Somalia went on display in Toronto. However, it was his more recent work photographing the Arab Spring revolt in Egypt that brought us together.
Nearly a year after those initial mass demonstrations in Cairo's Tahrir Square forced the ouster of Hosni Mubarak, Egyptians are back in Tahrir as their country moves towards the first post Mubarak parliamentary elections in 30 years.
As of November 26, 2011, nearly 40 people have been confirmed killed as police and protesters clash. Ed is back in the mix in Tahrir and we'll be following his coverage closely.
