Mamas Of Zanzibar, 2021

A photographic series documenting time spent with the seaweed farmers of Paje, Zanzibar.

The seaweed is used for a variety of macroalgae & plant-based skincare. An ethical and sustainable way to provide an income for these mamas.

Seaweed farming can also play a huge role in fighting climate change and provide opportunities to act as “charismatic carbon”. Absorbing carbon emissions, regenerating marine ecosystems, creating biofuel and renewable plastics as well as generating marine protein.
