Boubacar, 37 from Senegal.
Taken out of my series "Ciao, Grazie - The Beach Hawkers"

http://ak.refocus.de/#/?set=the_beach_hawkers

Ciao, Grazie –
The Beach Hawkers

They work at the most beautiful beaches in the world, during the most beautiful time of the year, but are often only considered as annoying.

They offer fake watches, bags, jewelry, sunglasses but also a lot of bric-a-brac to tourists. To most of us they are often only „faceless“ troublemakers.
Only few holiday-makers are concerned about the fate of these people during their vacation. Packed with their goods in scorching heat, the beach hawkers are wandering about the beach up to ten hours per day. A successful seller’s average day’s wage is about 10 – 20 Euros only.
Although offered as such, most of the goods do not come from Africa or India, but directly from Italy.

Andy Kämpf has got to know these people on the Italian coast and photographed them.
In honest and intimate portraits he shows people from Morocco, Bangladesh, Cameroon and Senegal.
From cheerful to friendly, proud, or melancholic, but also full of hope for a better future, we get to see the full range of portraits.

CIAO, Grazie!
