"How much can you carry?". Florian de Lasse

Traveling to countries in Africa and the Middle East, I constantly saw people who, like ants, dragging on zagorbke whole mountain of things, cans, with crop fields. Sometimes they slope of the weight back, proudly bear himself, holding a hand basket on her head, balance, daily home or transferring to market things.

I created this report to understand itself and to show others how much you can carry on themselves. It is a challenge to Western society, the world of consumption. Such a sharp contrast, I did not see at all never and nowhere.

The project "How much can you carry?" - Photo story about the difficulties of life full of people in the emerging economies. The key to happiness here - smiles and laughter, and they have nothing more to console themselves: they work all the time and something to wear here and there.

This project you can take on two levels. The first - a straightforward message. It's just a difference: who and what can carry themselves physically. A second hidden message: each carries his cross (family, social, life). And everyone copes with it differently. How much can you carry?
