Paris - Dakar

An accidental encounter of motorcycle racer Cyril Despres during his heavy championship trip in Paris Dakar. Despres ended 1st in this incredible wilderness journey. 

Wandering nomad tribe Touaregs share a cup of tea with him while the unveiled women watch. In this tribe it’s permitted that unveiled women are allowed to live in the presence of strangers. One particular scene in the hot desert. Therein against men will never take their veil off, in order to not give traitors in their environment an opportunity of recognition. 

The contrast between the veil and helmet gives a fascinating parable, yet the meaning in this is totally different.
