Work is a substantial part of lives across all cultures around the globe, our social ranking and recognition, our peer groups, even the choices we make in partnerships are deeply influenced by our professions.

With this on my mind I went on a seven month journey through Africa by car to create a different, respectful, modern and aesthetic view on a variety of professions.
