Best way to upload thousand of images

I’m planning to use Space as my image host. The problem is I need to upload a lot of images to it. Currently I’m using upload_fileobj of boto3 client, which upload sequentially and it is very slow.

What is the recommend approach to upload lots of images? Thank you.
