The opening of Evans-Pritchard's expedition tent with a table and camp chairs set up outside. On the table can be seen a number of notebooks as well as a leather camera case and a camera, probably his Kodak. Under the table can just be made out two large Huntley & Palmer biscuit tins. According to the film number the tent's location is probably at the mouth of the Nyanding among the Gaajok where Evans-Pritchard spent 4 weeks at the village of his servant Tiop, whom he had known from his 1931 fieldwork.
