Category: Danger Zone

Travelling’s about crossing more than just geographical borders. Some trips offer you the unbelievable opportunity to become a real, on-the-spot witness. To give an account of human and social situations that not everyone has the chance to see for themselves.

We’ve been to the zones “best avoided”: risky parts of town, countries at war, lawless places, and we’ve felt the need to record the stories of men and women just as they were told to us.

Stories of the victims of injustice, but also of those who teeter on the brink of illegality every day – or who have long since fallen.
