Description

Close up portrait of Salim bin Kabina, a member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party, in Al Humrah sands during the party's journey to Umm az Zumul. Salim bin Kabina, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, is bare chested and has a grimaced facial expression. He sits facing towards the right, his shoulder length hair bushed straight down on either side of his face.

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.
