Portrait of Salim bin Ghabaisha, one of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling companions, on the gravel plains below Jabal Sumeini posing with a feral donkey shot by Wilfred Thesiger. Salim bin Ghabaisha, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, crouches behind the head of a dead donkey. He holds a rifle in both hands. Blood pools in the rocks beneath the donkey. Behind them a vast bare rocky plain continues into the far distance.
