Dreaming of a Better Life

 

Humans as Commodities

by Stefan F. Lindberg and Lennart Johnsson

Throughout history, people have been standing by the ocean, trying to imagine a different life across the waters.

The movement of individuals and families looking for a better life is indeed a progressive force in the world. At the same time, this progress often comes at a high price for the individual. Constant longing for children and families left behind are the harsh facts behind export figures and flourishing economies.

So, who are these migrant workers? Who are the hard working fishers who can never afford to have fish for dinner? Who are the young women searching for a decent job, but instead ending up exploited in trafficking? And the domestic workers who come to have a closer relationship with their employers’ children than their own – who are they?

Photojournalist Stefan F. Lindberg’s pictures take us on a journey through a world few people like to acknowledge. Lennart Johnsson’s narration completes the pictures and deepens the understanding, sharing the life stories of migrant workers and their families.

This is the first book in a series of four about the migrant workers of the world.
