Longing for Lamu

Lamu feels like home in Africa for Dutch photographer Annelies Damen. The moment she put her feet on the Kenyan Archipelago twenty years ago, the poetic feel of the place has been triggering her creative mind. Lamu has kept an unspoilt Swahili culture for centuries, that inspires dreams of our past.

The slow pace of living, the surrounding Indian ocean, the organic food, the Swahili architecture but above all, the intriguing women she meets are the inspiration for this new series.
