El-Shimy photographer Hossam Muhammed, 22, told a local newspaper that he and his subject made a “deal” with local staff to take pictures around Djoser’s pyramid for about 15 minutes. The pyramid dates from the 27th century BC.
Muhammed was also arrested Monday night. El-Shimy referred to herself as Queen “Malban-titi” for the photo shoot, a name that combines references to the sweet Turkish delight, “Malban”, and Queen Nefertiti of ancient Egypt.
The photos went viral, reviving a heated debate about the difference between breaking social norms and breaking the law.
