Sir Wilfred Patrick Thesiger (1910 - 2003) British explorer, "... During more than fifty years spent travelling Thesiger documented magnificently, by his photography and prose, peoples and ways of life which…had changed irrevocably or else had vanished altogether...Far more important than where he travelled, however, was the manner in which he travelled, the enduring relationships he forged among tribes in remote, seldom visited areas, and the way he captured for posterity fast disappearing ways of life. By the time of his death he was widely acknowledged as among the greatest of twentieth-century explorers."
