Standing half length portrait of Musallim bin Al Kamam on a rooftop terrace in Dubai. Musallim bin Al Kamam (right), a sheikh of the Musaifar lineage of Rashid Bedouin, stands leaning on a railing, both looking into the right distance. He wears a cartridge belt and suspenders over his light coloured thobe (shirt) and an embroidered ghutra (headscarf).
