Morocco

In the bleak desert near the great sand dunes of Erg Chebbi in southeastern Morocco, a Berber woman with a flair for color and design leans against the wall of her adobe home. She is waiting for a ride to fetch water from a nearby well. Her traditional Berber cloak (halk), ankle-length trousers (chalwar), and headdress protect her from the intense heat and sun—and like the door of her home, they inject vivid color in this dun-colored landscape.
