The World Ahead Of Us²

is Joris & Joanna, photographer & graphic designer, Belgian - Dominican couple and we decided to leave our home behind to set off on an epic journey around the world. On February 26th of 2018 we left Belgium and started the adventure of a lifetime. To document everything we've created The World Ahead Of Us²; a visual playground where we share photography, our personal experiences on the road and the stories behind the photographs focusing on culture and people instead of selfies and tourist attractions...

Feel free to contact us if you have questions or just want to say hi...
