Abstract or Summary
  • This study investigates the setting, lifework, and influence of Josephine E. Powell, a photographer who traveled and lived with Middle Eastern nomads from the 1960s through the 1980s, while studying, photographing and collecting their textiles. In this period of time nomads of the Middle East were being strongly and often adversely affected by forced settlement, arbitrary national divisions of tribal lands, technological encroachment, and international conflicts. Their material culture was also changing and seemed destined to vanish along with their traditional way of life. Josephine E. Powell, by collecting nomadic textiles for museums in the Middle East and Europe and by photographing their creation and use prior to collection, has served as both conservator and cultural transmitter. By living and traveling among the nomads for many years, she has constructed a life of remarkable creativity and made a unique contribution to cross-cultural understanding in the Middle East.
