Bikes of Burden
Kemp, Hans. Hong Kong, China: Visionary World Ltd., 2003, 160 pp.
This book of 150 color photos by Hans Kemp documents extraordinary uses of motorbikes on the streets of Vietnam. Metal fencing, dead pigs, dozens of chickens, doors, truck tires and entire families are shown being transported on single bikes. These documents of everyday labor and survival evoke a sense of wonder and complete awe.
