Man building and decorating trucks in Pakistan

The story behind "Man building and decorating trucks in Pakistan"

Everybody who has been to Pakistan knows the huge elegant trucks that drive around. They are mostly hand built, based on an imported Bedford chassis on which a wooden structure is placed.

Though already functional, the truck will be decorated by up to a dozen men simultaneously, creating small metal bits and pieces, paintings, texts & slogans and other ornaments. Sometimes inspired by the business the owner is in, the area or lines from the Quran or just general international words like ‘love’:)

In total an almost hand built truck can be purchased for a few thousand dollars, this one above is almost finished, just the cabin gets the finishing touches
