Portrait of a Bedouin man, possibly a member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party, in Al Muwaiji near Al Muwaiji Fort in Al Ain oasis. The man sits cross-legged in the sand facing forward. He wears a plain thobe (shirt) and a large embroidered headscarf topped with an 'agal (head rope) that hangs down over his shoulder. In the left background another man leans into the frame. In the distance beyond a large expanse of flat sand runs to the far horizon.
