N.p. Robert Villa, 1974. Vintage double weight borderless press photograph of Pasolini, shot on location in the Middle East by noted photographer Roberto Villa. With Villa's ink stamp on the verso, along with the stamp of the Marka Archives. In 2008, Villa donated his vast archive to the Cineteca di Bologna, making his original prints rare on the private market.
Villa is a renowned photojournalist, having shot for numerous international publications (Vogue, Harper's, Playboy, etc.), and was a forerunner in the use of media technology and digital photography.

The photographs taken there were the subject of an April 2014 retrospective and exhibition at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto, where 64 photographs taken on the set of the film were shown.
