Photographer's Note

Bolama

This series are a tribute to the beautiful people of Bolama.

"In the streets of Bolama"

The firewood route

Children are real main workers to reach daily survival.

In Bolama island life goes around daily subsistence.
Agriculture,and a important seasonal resource: the cashew.
Some hunt is available the other side of the channel.
The ocean provides the fish... lots of.

Isolation could be a problem if we don't have means to do what is necessary.
The opinion that in general we have differentiated health cares some nearby ...is a pure mirage for this people.
Next to Bolama is Bissau,about 4-5 hours boat,departures and arrivals conditioned by the change of tide and climate.
..........

daily life...
