Close up portrait of a curly haired boy of the Mahamid lineage of Duru Bedouin, taken in the region west of the Hamrat ad Duru. The boy is the son of Huaishil, a man who was one of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling companions and a sheikh of the Duru. The boy stands facing towards the near left. He is smiling. He is wearing a headscarf wrapped loosely around his head and a light coloured thobe (shirt). In the distance beyond dry vegetation lies in the sand.
