The Empty Quarter – Portraits of the Sands

“No man can live this life and emerge unchanged. He will carry, however faint, the imprint of the desert, the brand which marks the nomad; and he will have within him the yearning to return, weak or insistent according to his nature. For this cruel land can cast a spell which no temperate clime can match”

Wilfred Thesiger

“The harder the life, the finer the person. In the desert I found a freedom unattainable in civilization; a life unhampered by possessions…”

Wilfred Thesiger
