These are all shot in Ghana, Africa, mostly in Accra the capital city, where I had my mobile phone stolen !! Nobody really knows the history of this method of carrying loads, other than it's widespread in Africa and has been happening for centuries. It can be said that it's quite a good way of carrying bulky size items and heavy weights. It's quite good for the spine, though but getting the goods on and off your head is another thing ! Also. the skill of carrying things on your head without holding is not something I'd be able to do easily !
