Pwani Kwa Bahari

Dominic Nahr sought a way to convey a feeling, a dreamlike walk where ocean and people meet. The coast of East Africa has a relationship with a range of cultures that goes back thousands of years. Place and people merge, both persisting in their own way among the ruins of their past and the everlasting waves. Dominic looked for images and moments that did not identify too much, but rather moved through the mood of the people and the ocean waters.
