Clint McLean, photographer and photo editor of the Globe & Mail newspaper, captured this priceless shot while in the Sahara desert north of Timbuktu. While traveling by camel he sat in the shade near a well to kill time during the hottest part of the day and shared a few magazines with the locals. This Toureg tribesman took particular interest in a copy of The Walrus with a cover illustration by Graham Roumieu. He looked through the whole magazine upside down and spent most of his time looking at the pictures.
BTW – check out Clint’s website, his work is really beautiful.
