Saharan Farmer

$50.00 Sold Out

While my travels in Marroco, I juerned to the Sahara where I was confronted by this old man walking one the vast empty dunes of sand. I had been taking landscapes of what appeared to be empty dunes till a figured appeared from a distance, he than grated me and told me he hadn't seen people in weeks, he just was wandering around walking his herd of sheep for 6 miles, starting from the crack of dawn. I was amazed by this nomade as he didn't appear to be holding any form of modern luxuries, not even a map or phone. I was later told that him and his people live on the Sahara untamed land for centuries and are proud people unwilling to conform to modern ways
