Egypt, 1920’s, in colour. Autochromes taken by Gervais Courtellemont and W. Robert Moore for National Geographic.
That second photo is actually someone posing as a monk with a tiger who is heavily drugged. It’s a place called “Tiger Temple” in Thailand and they’re a tourist attraction who face lots of backlash for animal abuse and breeding tigers without a license. I think it’s a good example of tourists who try to capture ~*beauty*~ in areas foreign to them without any kind of insight as to what’s exactly going on.
Being what you are makes you perfect.
