Description

Standing full length portrait of Wilfred Thesiger and Musallim bin Al Kamam on a rooftop terrace in Dubai. Wilfred Thesiger (left) and Musallim bin Al Kamam (right), a sheikh of the Musaifar lineage of Rashid Bedouin, stand on a rooftop terrace in Dubai. They are leaning against the balcony railing, which is made of carved wood and plaster. Each man wears a cartridge belt and suspenders over his light coloured thobe (shirt) and a ghutra (headscarf). Musallim bin Al Kamam also holds a camel stick. In the distance behind them wind towers top the roofs of nearby houses.

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.
