Around the world men, women, and children carry heavy loads upon their heads; Floriane de Lassée first stopped to speak with some of these carriers in Ethiopia in 2012.  This experience sparked the work "How Much Can You Carry?" an ongoing project about the personal and familial burdens one carries on a daily basis. 

 

Working in Rwanda, Nepal, Indonesia, Bolivia, Ethiopia, Japan and other countries, de Lassée asked people to talk about what mattered most to them. And in these remote communities, what mattered most was often objects of necessity or survival: sacks of grains for the farmer, bales of straw to be traded for a cooking pan, or empty bottles to be recycled. The participants show a surprising sense of curiosity, fun, and pride, while bearing a life of consumption, ritual, or needs on their heads.  - Catherine Edelman Gallery Press Release
