Photographer's Note

Trajan's kiosk is contained within the temple grounds at Philae. The kiosk is named after the emporer who rebuilt it. The statue of Isis would undertake an annual procession down the river Nile. At the end of the annual journey the sacred barge transporting the statue of Isis would land on the kiosk. The kiosk has 14 columns with screen walls. The screen walls display images of Trajan making offerings to Isis, Osiris and Horus
