Description

Portrait of a woman and two men at the open air market in the town of Qalat Bishah. In the foreground a woman wearing a headscarf and veil carries something on her head. Just behind her two men stand holding their hands near their mouths and looking into the near foreground. Behind them traders and shoppers fill the open air market. In the background a row of mud framed shelters sits at the far edge of the market grounds.

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.
