Full length standing portrait of a tribesman of the Bani Kitab Bedouin at a well near Sharjah city. The man wears a ghutra (headscarf) wrapped around his head and a thobe (long shirt) cinched with a belt. He holds a camel stick in one hand. A rifle lays on the ground in front of him, and behind him blankets and saddles lie in the sand.
