A photographic journey into the land of the Pharaohs

60 large photographs by Sandro Vannini display treasures previously hidden from the world.

The fascination with Ancient Egypt continues: under the patronage of the Egyptian Consul General Hala El-Ghannam, Semmel Concerts (producer of the Tutankhamun exhibition at the Alte Oberpostdirektion, Stephansplatz) and the Museum für Völkerkunde, the special exhibition “A Secret Voyage: Mysterious Egypt – A photographic journey into the lands of the Pharaohs“ finds it’s way into the museum. The world premiere of the impressive collection of large photographs by Sandro Vannini was celebrated here in Hamburg.
In the scope of “A secret journey” the Italian photographer Sandro Vannini documented the treasures of Egypt for ten years. This selection of 60 photographs ranging up to 1 × 3 meters size is on display in Hamburg for the first time.

The exhibition enchants the visitor with pictures from an unforgettable and extraordinary journey. For his work, photographer Sandro Vannini immersed himself into times long gone. With different themes of “love”, “beauty”, “festivals in Ancient Egypt”, “the ancient world at the Nile”, “universe”, “underworld” and “life after death”, the exhibition presents a diverse view of Ancient Egyptian culture. Rainer Verbizh was the designer of the exhibition layout. The renowned exhibition architect also designed “Tutankhamun – his grave and the treasures“.
For this special exhibition, Dr Zahi Hawass, Secretary General of the Egypt State Antiquities Service and Vice Minister of Culture of Egypt was a guest in Germany. Together with Sandro Vannini, Hawass also presented two new books: the recently published museum guide “Inside the Egyptian Museum” as well as the art book “A Secret Voyage” limited to 700 copies and available at the museum.


The exhibition has been open to the public since March 26, 2010.
