Captured a few hours west of Marrakech, the boys in this image represent an endearing Berber community that's persevering through the lingering effects of a global pandemic. The goats sit atop the boys in this image and remind me of their importance to this family's future. As tourism steeply dropped in this part of the country and access to clean water, housing, and education suffer, these animals serve and even more critical role in allowing these boys to move forward. And so I'm left with the question, is it man or nature really in charge?
