Travelling 40,000 km along the Pan-American Highway and crossing through 15 countries, Kadir Van Lohuizen visualized the stories of the communities, regions and societies he encountered.
“For this project, I wanted to experience the distances that many migrants travel. So I started my overland journey in Puerto Toro, the most southern settlement in Chile, and reached my endpoint almost a year later in Deadhorse, Alaska. I crossed 15 countries and documented the lives of the many migrants I met.
It struck me how vulnerable they are and how much they are exploited. I realised that to migrate is never an easy decision to make. But despite the difficulties, people leave their homes and start all over again somewhere far away, in the pursuit of happiness.”
