Bikes of Burden: Incredible Photos of the Most Insanely Overloaded Motorbikes in Vietnam

Intrigued by the amazing loads of stuff that are carried with lightweight motorcycles in Southeast Asia, Dutch photographer Hans Kemp created a series of photos documenting the unique motorbike culture of Vietnam where incredible feats of transportation are an everyday occurrence. The series titled "Bikes of Burden" was initially inspired when a client commissioned him to photograph some of the motorbikes around town. “I took some images and it really hit me how amazing this part of life in Vietnam was,” he said. “This small job was like the seed and it really rooted in my head that this was a great and unique part of everyday life. I had to document it,” he said.
