The clarity of contrast - a local fishing vessel passes by a catamaran off the island coast of Margaruque 1989 (11 km off the coast of Vilanculos, Mozambique) Those on the first vessel live in poverty, those on the second dwell in paradise.
Taken from journal entry - "Vilanculos - Poverty & Paradise" [link]
"The primary means to survival on the coast for the locals was fishing. This was done in a way that seemed ancient primitive practice. Boats were made out of logs which were hacked into shape by a hoe type axe, fishing nets were made by hand - there was nothing mechanical. The act of fishing seemed to involve the whole community where many played a part. "
Please note: Much of the film to these photographs I no longer posses. I have scanned in each and every one of these photos, removed dust & scratches - this has taken hours, and at times enhanced the colour. It would give me great joy if you spent some time going through all the pictures in the journal. At a closer glance you might notice some noise (before pixels came the grain of the film) or the pictures might seem a little faded. I have enhanced them as best I can, but have in no way altered the images themselves.
