Meet Walter and Alphous – Rickshaw drivers along Durban’s Golden Mile, a popular pedestrian stretch along its beachfront. Walter has been driving rickshaws for a decade while Alphous has been at it for 13 years. They love their job because they get to meet a diversity of people which keeps each day unpredictably exciting.

I’m currently in South Africa filming “Through the Lens” in partnership with South African Tourism and National Geographic Channel. Read more about this exciting project.
