Wilfred Thesiger Web Gallery

"The aim of this gallery is to introduce a selection of some 100 of Thesiger''s less well-known images. Sir Wilfred Thesiger, the distinguished explorer and travel writer, took some 38,000 photographs in over fifty years of travelling in the Middle East, Asia and Africa. The total collection forms an unparalleled historical document of the regions in which he travelled and the peoples he encountered, and it is now preserved in the Photograph Collections of the Pitt Rivers Museum.
