photos and video
We wish to thank all these dear friends, all fans of Lamu, all very talented in their fields, who so kindly helped and encouraged us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Eric Lafforgue for the fabulous photographs he has shared with us, including racing dhows and life in Lamu. A French photographer, traveling around the world with the eye of an anthropologist and the heart of an artist, his portraits of men, women and children around the world are remarkable.
Jaime Windon, The Blonde Photographer, also. Originally from Washington, Jaime has also lived and worked in Lamu, Kenya. She is now based in Maryland but continues to travel extensively, photographing subjects and landscapes with candour; a celebration of people who love life, of people who love the world around them.
Raul and Martina from Africashot for the quality of their video work. We love their video so much that we even extracted still images that we have included in the slideshow on our site. They clearly took the time to understand life here; its uniqueness, authenticity and generosity. Thank you.
Abdalla Barghash, from Lamu Studio, who helped us a lot too. Abdalla is very good at capturing the Lamu mood and daily life, he covers all important community events, tells the points of views of our elder Lamusians too. It's always a great pleasure to share ideas and work on a project with you, thank you my rafiki.
William Miriga a.k.a Namuks, a so so so much creative and talented kenyan photographer who came and stay here and shot Lamu people and Forodhani House so beautifully. We wish him and his lovely family the very best. Have a look on his website.
