Description

Seated portrait of Salim bin Ghabaisha, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin and one of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling companions, on one of the Abu Dhabi islands. Salim bin Ghabaisha crouches on a rocky outcrop looking at a piece of plant that he is holding in his hand. He is wearing a patterned izaar (skirt) and his hair is blown by the wind. Behind him small bushes grow scattered across a low sandy area below a flat plain. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's week and a half long sailing trip around the Abu Dhabi Islands with Sheikh Hazaa bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Sheikh Khalid bin Sultan Al Nahyan and their retainers in March 1948.

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
