Webb often highlighted the contrast between indigenous and colonial modes of transportation as he fulfilled his commission for the United Nations. In this photograph of a Jeep parked before a seemingly isolated structure in Somaliland (Somalia), he took care to include the camel in the background, perhaps to illustrate the coexistence of traditional and more “modern” forms of infrastructure.
