Zanzibar Memoir

A first glimpse of the work from my recent return to Zanzibar in November 2016. This is an ongoing project I have been working on for 23 years - rephotogaphing the same people - collecting the stories of this beautiful Muslim community off the coast of East Africa. 


All of these photographs are made with my old 1930's Crown Graphic 4x5 camera and the New55 and old type 55 Polaroid film. Please check back - i will be adding several more images in the coming weeks.
