About this item
This full-length seated portrait shows two pilgrims from Baghdad. They sit face forward on the ground, looking towards the camera.
The man on the right is dressed in a mid-coloured outer robe and a fez-like hat. The man on the left wears a thawb open at the chest or wide-legged trousers. Over his shoulders is a woven striped shawl, possibly a keffiyeh and on his head is a patterned turban. He is barefoot.
The two men are photographed in a courtyard-like space with foliage visible in the background and a dark-coloured sheet hanging loosely behind them.
The negative has had hand-work applied, causing it to take on a soft-shaded quality in places.
