In the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Kenya, there is an island. On this island there is a stone town; its stone buildings stand as skeletons of the splendor of its yesteryears. High tide, low tide, Full moon, new moon. Lamu is an island frozen in time. Now Africa’s largest port is being constructed. In order to evolve, what part of ourselves do we keep and what part do we leave behind?

This is my first photographic self-portrait - that day was extremely hard, I was alone, I had to take a photograph in order to remind myself of my loss. I had completely forgotten about this moment, this engraving, this image, until now, when I got the image from the Lab. This was almost 6 months ago.
