Half length standing portrait of an Iranian porter in Dubai. A smiling middle-aged man with a short moustache stands on a Dubai street in front of wooden door. He wears a light coloured waistcoat over a half unbuttoned thobe (long shirt), beneath which an undershirt is visible. On his head he wears a dark patterned ghutra (headscarf) tied over a light taqiyah cap.
