Seated portrait of Sultan bin Ahmad, a tribesman of the Sh'asha lineage of Bayt Kathir Bedouin, in the Wadi Thu'ayt. Sultan bin Ahmad kneels in a patch of sand in front of a stand of tall vegetation. He wears a khanjar (dagger) on a cartridge belt around his waist and his headscarf hangs loosely around his neck.
