Description

Full length portrait of Salim bin Ghabaisha, a member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party, standing in sands north of Al Ain oasis. Salim bin Ghabaisha, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, stands in the sand at centre left, looking out across the horizon. An assortment of gear lies in the sand by his feet. In the distance beyond bushes and tufts of vegetation grow on uneven ground.

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.
