Seated portrait of Muhammad bin Al Jabari, one of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin guides, at a campfire in Ramlat ar Rabbad sands. Muhammad bin Al Jabari, a tribesman of the Awamir Bedouin, sits in the foreground surrounded by coffee urns and cooking pots. He is snapping firewood for the fire in front of him, on which one of the urns sits. He wears a cartridge belt over his thobe (shirt) and a headscarf topped with an 'agal (head rope). In the distance behind a stretch of flat sand lies on the right, possibly a sabkha (salt flat).
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.
