Nearly two months after President Hosni Mubarak stepped down, Egypt finds itself in a state of flux. Magnum photographer Thomas Dworzak, on assignment for TIME, has been capturing the nuance and spirit of Cairo as the city awaits its future.

Dworzak said it was frustrating to arrive months after the revolution “having missed the party,” but after covering the civil war in Libya, he said it was great wandering around downtown Cairo in its post-revolutionary political awakening while looking for hints of what direction Egypt is heading. “In those few days I saw a liberal political party being funded by ritzy Egyptians. I hung out with shisha-smoking, ‘Facebook-generation’ revolutionaries. And I photographed one of the Islamic Jihad founders implicated in Anwar Sadat’s assassination who had just been freed from jail and has become a leader of a radical Islamic party.”
