This photograph of the Palestinian city of Hebron depicts the remains of a ruin against the backdrop of the city and its surrounding landscape. The ruin appears like a graveyard in comparison to the white array of buildings that constitute the city of Hebron in the middle ground. The photograph emphasizes the particularities of the landscape in the region, while relegating the city to the background, a tactic Frith and his studio employed on a number of occasions.Physical Description
Landscape view from the perspective of a ruin in the foreground. A village of white buildings is visible in the background, at the foot of two hills.Primary Object ClassificationPhotographCollection AreaPhotographyRights
