Tales of the Moroccan Amazons
Category: Arab Documentary Photography Program
Year: 2014
Status: Closed

The fantasia or the "tbourida" is a traditional equestrian show which feigns war techniques developed by the Arabs to surprise the enemy. It is a man's business from the days of pre-modern chivalry. Yet, since a few years, women in Morocco have hustled the habit. These new 'amazon women' strive to stand out in this patriarchal warlike discipline.
