I am a self-taught photographer who has been living and working in Africa for nearly 35 years now. I started out as an agricultural engineer but became a full-time professional photographer in 1992. I have since shot numerous stories for all sorts of magazines, including the Sunday Times Magazine, National Geographic, the Smithsonian, GEO and Paris-Match.
The work presented here will be featured in my upcoming book "Six Degrees South", to be released in September 2018 by Contrejour Publishers (www.editions-contrejour.com).
This chapter on the Swahili Coast is but the first leg of a long photographic journey where I have started looking at the fate of disadvantaged fishing communities the world over.
