Rural Mozambique

Since 2004 my wife, Miriam Chaiken, has visited Mozambique several times working as a consultant for an international aid organization that is concerned with the issues of health care and nutrition. All of the photos in the gallery are from Nampula Province in the north of the country. Most of her photos are of project activities and local community members. On the odd day off she was also able to visit Isla de Mocambique, which is an historic fishing and trading center, recently designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Photos from 2011 were taken with the Canon G11 camera. In 2007 she used the Sony H5 while all of the images from 2004 were taken with an ancient Canon Pro 90 with a 10x zoom lens.
