Photographer's Note

Somewhere, in the middle of nowhere...
There was no sense to drive further south, we took off the main trail and hit westwards, direction sandy dunes of the Sahara. After 30 km and one hour drive we stoped. And out there - in the middle of nowhere - those 3 kids appeared. There was no visible settlement on horizon, we did not pass any on our way. Where did those guys come from?

The Sahara is a potent, evocative reality. It is one of the worlds great brands. No one name so completely epitomizes an environment. Oceans can be Atlantic or Pacific or Indian, mountains can be Himalayas or Andes or Alps, but if you want to convey desert, you only have to say Sahara.
It embodies sale and mystery, the thin line between survival and destruction, the power to take life or to transform it. A self-contained, homogenous, identifiable world, uncompromising and irreducible.
In other words, a challenge. And by no means an easy one
