I’m Joris Hermans, Belgian documentary & world photographer, explorer, and founder of The World Ahead Of Us². I’ve been traveling and taking photos professionally for more than ten years and I explore the world to experience cultures, meet people and learn as much as I possibly can about this awesome rock we’re living on… so I can help you do the same.
In February of 2018, I decided to leave Belgium to travel and photograph the world indefinitely with my partner in life, Joanna. We’re still on the road today and we document everything on TWAOU².

Joris Hermans was born in Geel, Belgium. He studied computer science and photography. After his graduation, he has been combining freelance and personal work and in 2013 he followed a small NGO and production company to Africa, where he realized his first photo story.
Since then, he decided to devote himself entirely to photography using it as a mean for discovery and story-telling. He started traveling and worked on personal projects all over the world.
Joris’ work has been recognized through several photography awards, among them the Nikon Press Photo Award and PDN World in Focus.
Hi, I’m Joanna, Dominican girl with many flaws but an open mind. I try hard in everything I do but I don’t always get the results I want. I studied graphic design, which I love, but regret not focusing more on drawing and illustration. I met an amazingly talented photographer while working in Germany. In 2018 we set off on an epic journey around the world. We’re still on the road. I write stories for The World Ahead Of Us².
