“The Charreria is Mexico´s only national sport. It is said that to be a good Charro you have to learn how to ride a horse before you can walk…”

“…Sometimes, the riders are kids with no education, and they see the Charreria as a way out of the misery. If they succeed, they will be superstars.” Cesar Rodriguez-Becerra

“…A study of color, movement, and texture.” Ali Jardine

“…Sadhus wait on the banks of the Ganges in Varanasi, India for the begining of Maha Shivratri, an important Hindu Festival.”Alfred Pleyer
