About this title


A nomadic people whose lives are rich in colour and culture, the Bedu have lived for centuries in the vast and inhospitable deserts of the Middle East. But today the Bedu culture is under threat: their migrations are curtailed by the vast oil wealth of the region and their close links with the land are in jeopardy. Their livelihood depends on moving freely about the land with their herds, but for how much longer will they be able to do so? With chapters on the Bedu and their land, life in the desert, women and children, and crafts and culture, this photographic tribute aims to 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.
