Synopsis: The Bedu people have lived for centuries in the inhospitable deserts of the Middle East, but now their culture and way of life is under threat by modern life. Alan Keohane has spent many years travelling with Bedu tribes in the Middle East and in this compelling photographic record, he pays tribute to the ancient tribal customs that still survive among those who continue their annual journey across the desert plains. Above all, "Bedouin" is a photographic portrait of a people whose life is rich in colour and culture. Its testimony will ensure that the Bedu and their ancient, determined lifestyle are not forgotten.
From the Publisher: For centuries, the Bedu have herded their livestock across the inhospitable deserts of the Middle East, their scattered goat?hair tents the only signs of habitation in an otherwise barren landscape. In this remarkable photographic essay, Alan Keohane keenly observes the details of nomadic life, from the everyday chores of cooking and collecting water to the more exotic tasks of weaving, moving camps, and celebrating feasts. The life of the Bedouin is rich in color and culture, but this book also shows a people struggling to maintain their age?old bonds with desert and tradition in the face of the encroaching demands of the 20th century. Alan Keohane?s photographs have appeared in major publications throughout Europe. Among his previous books is The Berbers of Morocco.
