    Artist Statement

    "This portrait is from my on-going project: Living Nomadic. The photograph was taken in the Anti Atlas region of Morocco where some nomadic people, including this girl and her family, live. To take this portrait I used my Nikon D200 and Nikon AF-S 24-70mm f2.8G lens. For a long time, I've been interested in nomadic people and their lives in the different areas of the world. This was my motivation for taking this shot.

    "A nomadic lifestyle may seem like heaven to some of us, but it may seem unrewarding and bitter for others. Just like everything else in life, being a nomad has its advantages and disadvantages. Nomads have been a distinct element and carriers of civilizations within the old world dry belts for thousands of years, from Morocco in the west extending to northern China in the east."
