I took this shot in a little remote Berbere village in the Atlas mountains of Morocco.
I walked into this house that was used as a so called restaurant; crates on a dirt floor where used as tables and chairs. These 3 men invited me to have lunch with them.
I had a cup of mint tea while they were sharing their lunch plate, a Tagine.
They were attending the village market and were having lunch together before going home.
In these parts of Morocco, men are doing the shopping not the women. Sometimes they have to walk for hours pulling their donkeys to buy food for the family.

So primitive, it's almost like a shot from a movie! the light is fantastic....the men are at ease and not posing, and they are doing something real, not fake or posed. The man on the left looks very wise. Awesome, Didier!

The light talks to us here...very sympathetic portrait of these 3 men. I have a feeling this might even be better in color... -v
