Guet Ndaru Mol – Organic photography & portraits. A photo essay with portraits that I have produced on fish skin. They represent a community of fishermen who, as a result of climate change, coastal erosion and rising sea levels, are losing their homes and jobs in a world in which the entire traditional and small-scale fishing and fish processing are at stake. These portraits are accompanied by witnessing voices by the persons involved, telling that all this is happening now.

Sabaru Tey A photographic continuation to my earlier sound work on sabar, with a focus on the bodily transmission of culture.

Asmari House, or What Happened After Curfew – A photographic study on the Ethiopian institution of Asmari Houses and their role in the Ethiopian urban culture (October 2019).
