Photographed: 1990
Agadez, Niger, Africa

In 1990 I covered The Paris-Dakar road ralley race as a television cameraman, but I also took my still camera with me and snapped photos whenever I could.  We were waiting for the racers to drive by while we were out in the desert and from out of nowhere, these 3 ladies appeared.  We bought some homemade jewelry from them while they were wondering why we were waiting there.  I felt that this shot really captures the 3 girls in their harsh environment.  We were all wearing professional desert hiking boots and safari shorts.  What would you wear in the desert?
