Exodus: between promise and fulfilment
01 September 2003


The Kettle's Yard Gallery, University of Cambridge Cambridge, United Kingdom , is showing until August 8th 2003 an exhibition of photographic works taken in the Sinai desert during the second half of the 19th Century.

In 1869 a small survey team of Royal Engineers led by Captain Wilson and Captain Palmer and including the photographer Sgt. James McDonald, began a five month expedition into the Sinai desert - the region where Moses and his followers wandered for forty years in search of the Promised Land. Their goal, under the auspices of the military, was to produce accurate maps and survey photographs of the region. In particular: "that there is a great need to carry out such a survey must be manifest to all students of Old Testament history; among the most important and interesting questions which are subjects of inquiry are the locations of the Passage of the Red Sea, the Route and Encampments of the Israelites, and the identification of the Mountain of the Law-Giving."
