EXHIBITION: MOZAMBIQUE

Marcus Thomson

MOZAMBIQUE
Marcus Thomson
11th June to 20th June, 2013

In June and July 2010 I was asked by the UN in Mozambique to document the work of a radio station in remote areas of the country which was using local DJs to educate its audience regarding HIV. Whenever I could during this time, I escaped the expat scene to discover the country and its people for myself.The UN project finished, I arrived back in the Capital Maputo and gave myself six weeks to capture my own personal journey in Mozambique. However I knew finding, and gaining access to the photographs I was after, would be tricky, as I didn't know anyone and did not speak the local language, Portuguese.I tracked down the only photography studio in the country and met Mario, a local photographer. He not only assisted me on shoots, but also got me into places most travellers never have access to; enabled me to meet and photograph people and living conditions outsiders never see. By the time I left the country, Mario and I had become good friends.Mozambique is a natural wonder, but it's the people whom I was lucky enough to meet who are the subjects of this exhibition. They're tough, cool and tenacious, and have an amazing capacity for getting the most out of life, even under the most difficult conditions.

These images cover a diverse range people in Mozambique—artists and musicians creating works as vibrant as the country itself; city slum dwellers eking out a living on a putrid garbage dump; farmers and families struggling to survive in the unforgiving countryside, and women practicing traditional water rituals, washing away spirits and praying for husbands.
