How Much Can You Carry?
"How Much Can You Carry?"
On roads of East Africa, blinded by the sun, we drive again and again. By moto, by bus, by 4x4. The landscapes varies, roads also, but always these walkers of roadside who seem to carry all their life on the head.
Such of ants in an impeccable balance, men as women carry wooden mountains, tins of water, and food, the harvests of field also.
The back bent sometimes, but always the straight neck and the fixed look, they are going to sell to the market either return reserves necessary for the house.
Of this report and because I had for a long time as subject of preference the consumption in the western countries, I imagined a series quite so playful as reflecting the life of people.
"How Much Can You Carry?" is above all a tribute to the bearers of life; those whose life is heavy and where smiles and laughter become the key to a livable existence.
This series can be read on two levels: the first refers to these modern caryatids; the second, most secret, talks about various weight we all carry, whether physical or psychological (the weight of tradition, education, family, etc.).
