The Bedouin were originally nomadic tribes from the Arabian Peninsula who came to the Badi of al Sham looking for pastures for their camels and their livestock. Their women were housekeepers and in charge of all domestic matters. The conditions of the Badia impose a constant movement of people and animals and were considered well off because they produced their own meat and dairy products. ‘Cast Away’ is a project which shows the Bedouin tribe, -Abu Eid from Bekka Valley, Lebanon- as it is today. It is alive and full of contradictions, floating between a past of self-reliance and the inherent dependence of modern society.
