Tracking the Bedouins

A major exhibition of photographs showing what life is like for Bedouin people in the 21st century has opened at Dundee Contemporary Arts. More than 120 black and white and colour images feature in a two-part display of work by Ahlam Shibli.

A social worker before she became a photographer, Ahlam has been documenting the Palestinian Bedouins' way of life for five years. Like other nomadic people, they have come under pressure to settle in designated areas.

The exhibition, which runs until April 1, focuses on their homes in official and unofficial villages. We also get a close up of what life is like for the men who serve as trackers in the Israeli army.
