Description

View of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting camp in the Al Khatam sands near Al Ain. In the foreground a member of the hunting party stands nearby piles of blankets and equipment lying in the sand alongside two large bushes and a tall tree. In the distance beyond a camel walks past a man sitting in sand dotted with large bushes and clumps of qassis (sedge), while further beyond four more members of the party stand nearby some seated men. In the far background a number of large trees grow across the plain, behind which a line of low dunes rises. This image was taken between December 20, 1948, and January 27, 1949, during which time Wilfred Thesiger stayed with Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan in Al Ain and joined him on a number of hunting excursions.

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.
