Trunk also recently ran 18 pages of Florio’s Gambina chiefs and elders (‘There and Back Again’) from our 2009 expedition – did we mention that we walked 930km around the small West African country?: A Short Walk in the Gambian Bush-930km African odyssey

Trunk Magazine – “There and Back Again’ Images © Jason Florio

“There and Back Again” is Trunk’s longest layout yet. Photographer, Jason Florio, has created one of the most stunning portrait pieces we’ve ever seen…this is what you get from 15 years of traveling to a country, learning its customs, and being open with its people…a comfort level that is achieved only through a truly authentic relationship between photographer and subject…18 pages of breathtaking portraits of chieftains (or alkalos) from the numerous Gambian villages that Florio visited on his circumnavigation (by foot!) of the country. We would’ve run the article even longer, but needed to fit all of our must-read stories into the issue…” David Ciconni – Creative Director and Founder TRUNK
