The visitor sets out on a photographic trip around the world covering all continents and a wide variety of themes and historical events of the year 2013.

This mystical image depicts African migrants on the shore of Djibouti city at night, raising their phones in an attempt to catch an inexpensive signal from neighbouring Somalia.
