Abandoned Egyptian Hotels: Photos by Haubitz & Zoche

Published Feb 22, 2018

‘Sinai Hotels’ is a photography project by German artists Sabine Haubitz and Stefanie Zoche, documenting abandoned hotel projects in the Egyptian desert.

“The word ruins ordinarily conveys a connotation of scarcely delineated brick walls and rubble dating back hundreds if not thousands of years, but the work of German artists Sabine Haubitz and Stefanie Zoche serves as a powerful reminder that unfortunate events, especially economic ones, can easily create ruins of much more recent vintage almost anywhere.

Haubitz and Zoche’s 2006 book Sinai Hotels vividly documents hotel projects in the Egyptian desert that were commenced in good faith but then, for reasons unknown, were abandoned. In virtually every case, the failed investment projects resulted in concrete foundations but remarkably little else, stranded in an otherwise vacant landscape of sand.”
