About this item

Content

Genre/Subject Matter:

This full-length seated portrait shows six pilgrims from Selajar (commonly: Saleyer) in Indonesia. They squat face forward, looking towards the camera.

The man on the far right wears a striped robe, open at the neck and turban. He holds a long, straight stick upright in his left hand and a ring on the little finger of his right hand. The man second from right wears a white shirt and checked sarong with a dark-coloured turban. The man third from right wears a white shirt and trousers embroidered at the hems with a white turban. The man third from left wears a white jelabiya over checked trousers and a white turban. He wears a ring on the little finger of his right hand. The man second from left wears a dark-coloured jacket embroidered at the lapels and white trousers with a printed turban. He also has a rig on the ring finger of his right hand. The man at far left wears a mid-coloured jelabiya and a large white turban.

The negative has had hand-work applied, causing it to take on a soft-shaded paint-like quality in places. In particular the original background has been substituted completely, except for the ground on which their chairs stand.

The men are photographed in a courtyard-like space with plants – some in wide wooden pots – foliage and a window, fronted by bars, visible in the background.
