Photographer's Note

During the 1990s, car ownership in Morocco was still relatively low and highways, particularly south of Rabat, had little traffic. Driving conditions could be hairy nevertheless. New drivers often seemed to think they were supposed to straddle the center white line (especially scary at night) and non-drivers, human and animal, had little or no fear of traffic. This young shepherd seemed quite confident that we would stop for his sheep. The quality of the shot isn't great (it was taken from the car, using slide film, and is a scan) but I still find it an amazing record of a time that I'm sure is long gone.
