Half length portrait of an Iranian porter (possibly Baluch) standing in front of a wall in Dubai. A man with a trim moustache stands against a wall, facing directly foreward. He wears a T-shirt topped with an open collared shirt and a large striped ghutra (headscarf) with one end hanging down over his shoulder.

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.
