Men Celebrating on Horseback, Morocco

Photograph by Thomas Abercrombie

"A dozen turbaned riders, twirling and firing their musket-loaders, screamed across the plain full-bore toward us. I looked for a place to jump.…In Morocco, traditional ways often march hand in hand with progress; this celebration marked the opening of a new hospital in the little town of Rommani, south of Rabat."—Thomas Abercrombie
