Eni­kö Nagy: Sand in my Eyes. Suda­ne­se Moments

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.

A reve­la­ti­on.

The Guar­di­an

More than an eth­no­gra­phic stu­dy, this hand­so­me­ly illus­tra­ted book is a moving per­so­nal tri­bu­te to the peo­p­le of the Repu­blic of the Sudan.
