A Head of Time is a photographic series in which Christian Gaul follows the daily life of the zungueiros, street vendors who roam the city of Accra, the capital of Ghana. The zungueiros carry bowls or other containers with various products on their heads. They are the heirs of the traditional quitandeiros – small traders involved in street vending in the colonial phase of the 17th century. Gaul used the same technique as his fashion photos to portray this centuries-old African practice.
