15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Scarf in the wind

I have spent a month in Mauritania in the spring of 2016 riding in the cargo carriages of the longest train in Africa together with the local traders and shepherds and photographed their journeys. This shot shows a Mauritanian shepherd trying to put on a head scarf while the train is crossing the desert.
