Item description for Lyrics Of The Sands by Gloria Kifayeh...
This beautiful book showcases the spectacular desert portraits of the photographer Gloria Kifayeh, whose images of the Empty Quarter in Arabia have received widespread acclaim. Accompanying the illustrations are quotations from the works of the great Arab poets, from the earliest pre-Islamic Bedouin odes to the poetry of the Abbasid courts. These insights into the desert way of life, evoked by the early bards of the Arabian peninsula, serve to highlight the cultural heritage of the desert landscape-- a view through the eyes of its inhabitants to accompany the author's vivid portrayal through the photographic lens.
This attractive book will appeal to lovers of high quality photography, as well as to those with an interest in the desert and the Middle East.
