Yuri Kozyrev—NOOR for TIME

To illustrate this week’s cover story on the Egyptian elections, TIME turned to contract photographer Yuri Kozyrev, who’s been documenting the Arab Spring since it’s beginnings in early 2011. Covering Egypt’s electoral process and runoff, Kozyrev captured the celebrations and protests after Mohamed Morsy was declared President. One of Kozyrev’s more powerful photos  of a Morsy supporter was chosen for the cover of this week’s issue. 

"We originally mocked up more than a dozen covers," explained Victor Williams, TIME’s international art director, "but we were looking for a single, arresting image. We finally settled on this image [of a masked protestor] staring directly at the viewer. That the new President’s face appears on his mask is so powerful, with his disguised but commanding allegiance. We loved that he was staring directly at the viewer."
