      Since the late s, there has been a boom in tourism focused on the Khushmaan Ma’aza Bedouin of Egypt's northern Eastern Desert. While entrepreneurship on the part of a Bedouin, along with growing numbers of potential visitors, has fuelled this growth, a natural drought has pushed large numbers of Bedouin into the tourist trade. Almost no rain fell over the Khushmaan homeland between Bedouin life in the village of St Catherine centres round the family and community; their camels and goats; wild herbs and cultivated gardens; and work with the monastery and tourists. Thanks to the talents of Terry Weston, we are building up a gallery to celebrate this rich communal and personal life.
