Product Details
The skipper of small dhow hauls anchor as the sun starts to colour the early morning sky. I took this photograph in the mid-1990s, at the mouth of a creek along the kenyan coast. Smaller dhows, or mashua as they are known is Swahili, are vessels mostly using for fishing and carrying cargo in coastal waters. For over a thousand years similar boats have plied the coast of East Africa, from Somalia to Mozambique. I shot this image on Fuji velvia 100 iso slide film. The camera was a Nikon F3, arguably the best professional SLR camera of its time. Some years later I scanned the slide image, using a dedicated Minolta Dimage slide scanner, producing a 42 megapixel digital image. It's important to note that film does not produce the razor-sharp, clean edges of modern digital cameras. Printed on museum-quality posters made on thick and durable matte paper.
