Welcome to the Wild Coast

Welcome to Závora. Let Jeff, Henriqueta, Valentino and Silvino – four members of Závora’s small coastal fishing community – take you on a focused journey to Mozambique’s Wild Coast through their own eyes.

For two weeks, each was armed with a camera and a mission to show us their story, frame by frame. The goal of this participatory photography project was to provide us, the observers, a snapshot of their daily lives – and through this, a better understanding of their realities, motivations, challenges and needs.

With coastal communities often marginalized and underserved, misunderstood and forgotten, what emerges is a deeply personal look at those who live and work in this extraordinary place along Mozambique’s Wild Coast.
