THE WORLD AHEAD OF US², founded by photographer Joris Hermans, is a collaborative travel and photography journal—a place for inspiration aimed at explorers and photographers looking to experience cultures and meet people from around the world. Since we set off in February of 2018, we have established ourselves as a platform for explorers, travelers and photographers—designed to explore a little further.

We are open to collaborations with brands and companies who share our vision for cultural, creative exploring, photography and traveling. We inspire our audiences to get out there, travel further and create more. Do you think your destination or product is right for our audience?
