The Slowriders

Faces of Namibia by Oliver Beccarelli

The Swiss travel photographer, story collector and presenter Oliver Beccarelli and his wife Corinne have been traveling Africa for 16 years with all kinds of vehicles. Since 2007 they have been on a world tour with a Russian astronaut sidecar motorcycle with the aim of “crossing Africa as slowly as possible”.

In Namibia Oliver was able to meet many people and take photographs of them and their life. He gave us permission to showcase some of his impressive pictures.
