The Abundance Of Satellite Dish Antenna In The Cities Of North Africa

A photographer does not need any special place or figure to show his photography talent to the world. After many years living in morocco, Algeria and Egypt, Manuel Alvarez Diestro has dedicated a new photography series to the vernacular architecture of Northern Africa, In particular, satellite dish antenna that tells the number of families or television residing in the buildings. Adhering to the facades or located on the roofs of buildings, satellite dish antennae add an additional layer to urban buildings, they are like parasitic living creatures that are attached to structures. Lets see the abundance of satellite dish antenna in the cities of North Africa

Diestro notes a characteristic feature of North Africa that buildings reflect the lives of those who live in them. From the modernist  structures of Algeria, influenced by the French architect Le Corbusier, to the more modest buildings in Cairo, These types of satellite dishes are becoming part of the local architecture. 
 
The attitude of residents to adding more and more satellite dishes adds a natural touch to buildings. This improvisation takes us to new areas of expression, turning facades into a triumph of rhythm and color.
