Modern Bedouin

This photograph reminds me of the sect of Arab Bedouin men from photographs of life in the desert. I have an etching by the Australian printmaker, Stewart E.Wade, “Bedouin Mendicant” (1921) who looks very much like this man.  (Click to enlarge)

    • That was my husband during the winter before he died. He’d lost a lot of weight in his face. This photograph reminded me of somebody’s ancestor. It’s one of my favorites too. Thanks.


    • It IS Deano. This was shot the winter before he died at the end of the next July. He was already very thin.
