"Who are you and where do you come from? What is the purpose of your visit and what do you always take with you when travelling?" These same questions were asked to travellers in Amsterdam, London, Paris and New York. The result is a collection of open and surprising portraits of modern-day nomads. Meet a Belgian mother and her son, a pole dancing business woman, a Saudi travelling for the first time, a DJ and many, many more.

"When God wants you to grow, he makes you uncomfortable"- Stephanie (b.1988, Jakarta), in London for a Hermès business trip.
"I travel a lot because of my job, so I've become a gypsy really. I could live pretty much everywhere on this planet" - Dilyara (b.1988, Moscow), in Amsterdam to have some quality time with her boyfriend.
