Headstrong 410px 14 10 31A photographer has travelled the world to showcase the talents of people who can carry heavy loads on their heads.

Floriane de Lassée, from France, went to some of the world's most remote landscapes, from East Africa to South America, in search of subjects for her photo series, 'How Much Can You Carry'.

The 37-year-old took on the project after becoming fascinated with the long lines of walkers carrying objects on their heads on roads around Africa.

So far she has pictured 70 people and travelled through 15 regions within seven countries to compile the spectacular images.

Her aim was to stage each person balancing the items that mean the most to them and her subjects ranged from children in Bolivia to tribesmen in Ethiopia.

She said: 'Leaving misery on the side, the models show a unique sense of curiosity, fun, and pride in staging themselves, proud to put forward what can be considered in lots of cases as their only survival means.'
