In this carefully conceived work the author and photographer introduces the diverse cultures of Sudan and their philosophy of life. Her stunning portraits show graceful and radiant heirs of ancient traditions and intriguing ways of life. The colourful images capture the mood and poetry of everyday moments and rare ceremonies, while verses, tales, proverbs and anecdotes draw you into the social fabric. Through its unique perspective interweaving intangible heritage and traditional narratives, Sand in my Eyes reveals an intimate look into the traditions and timeless wisdom of a people, in a moving documentation of rich cultural and spiritual heritage, in some of the hardest-to-access regions of the world. Texts in English and Arabic.
