Joakim Larsen

 

is from Copenhagen, Denmark. He is a photographer and a writer with a background in economics, logistics and tourism. He has travelled extensively in Africa and has developed a deep affection for the Mother Continent.

 

Being a traveller rather than a tourist, he takes delight in personal encounters with people from all backgrounds. And he does not follow the traditional path. Instead he travels to remote areas and takes time to meet people on their turf, under their conditions and in respect of their background and traditions. And he does it to learn.

 

 

"Traveling is many things. But above all it is learning. And when the learning is mutual, and both the visitor and the visited benefit... it becomes a higher form of travel."

- Joakim Larsen
