We met this old Berber man in the Middle Atlas Mountains in Morocco, off the beaten track. He and his family of seven take care of livestock and lead the nomadic life, migrating in pursuit of shelter, water and grazing land. Their whole household fits into a cave of two by two metres naturally shaped in an undulating valley where they cook, sleep and store a handful of possessions. It is a hard life and these are hardy people. People who are one with the land.

 Another indigenous Berber group are Touareg people closely associated with Saharan North Africa. Although many of them still pursue a mystic nomadic existence amid sandy hinterlands, some are settled like this Rissani man guarding the history of the Alawite dynasty.
