Sam Satchu, ‘Stone Town, Zanzibar Tanzania. ’, 2016, Museum of African Design (MOAD)


This is Ibrahim, I met him at Forodhani Gardens, where him and his friends come together almost every evening, to complete against each other on who can do the best flips into the water. ⠀
Ibrahim stood out to me the most, not because of his amazing diving skills, but of his sheer humbleness and ambition. Ibrahim was picking up plastic trash that was dumped into the Ocean. He would go in and carry out as much as he can and then dive back in again. Some of his friends would tease him, but they eventually joined in to give him a helping hand.
