Author Khaled El Shalakany has always believed in the artistic similarity between a very short story and a still photograph. For him, they both capture a slice of imagination, leaving the rest to the readers. This belief prompted him to write “20x20-Short Stories and Photographs,” (published by Trafford Publishing) an interesting and thought-provoking collection of short stories and photographs.

This book shares an original and thought provoking collection of short stories and photographs with an astounding range from Chairman Mao as the Blue Buddha, time travel to change history, to Archangel Azrael known as the angel of death who is driving a taxi in Cairo.

“The stories in this book are intended to be very short and interesting,” El Shalakany points out. “Similarly the pictures are from different countries. It offers both literary and visual appeal as it examines different aspects of the human condition.”

In his career as a lawyer, El Shalakany has experienced the difficulty of being concise and efficient in expression. He has learned to appreciate the inherent beauty in such simplicity. He hopes that the collection of short stories and photographs in “20x20” will convey some of this meaning to the readers.
