Photographer's Note

On the east coast of Zanzibar the tides are very big and spectacular. In some places during the low tide the ocean moves back up to a kilometer. Azure waters of the Indian ocean, snow-white sand, blue sky - this is the oneiric world of marine farmers. These plots are almost half a kilometer from the shore. In the morning the whole village moves on a white, sea desert. Women cultivate seaweed, the fishermen set off in their traditional wooden dhow boats, children playing all around. The unreal spectacle lasts for several hours until waters return around noon. The ocean floods the fields again, allows boats to come back to the port and moves the whole local society back to the village.
