'The Sniper', an Afridi tribesman from the Khyber, 1920 (c).

Photograph by Randolph Bezzant Holmes (1888-1973).

Randolph Bezzant Holmes was a professional photographer who lived for over 50 years in the North West Frontier region of India. His business was based in Peshawar from 1918 to 1947. He travelled extensively with both civil and military expeditions in the Himalayas and Central Asia.



The photograph is posed: the 'sniper' has no flint in the damaged lock of his jezail and has failed to cock it.
