Photographer's Note

Changuu Island (also known as Kibandiko, Prison or quarantine island) is an island northwest of Stone Town, Zanzibar. The island was used as a prison for rebellious slaves in 1860 and also worked as a mine coral. The Prime Minister of Zanzibar, Lloyd Mathews, bought the island in 1893 and built a prison complex there. She became a quarantine station for yellow fever cases. More recently, the island has become a tourist resort owned by the government and houses a collection of giant Aldabra tortoises that were originally a gift from the British governor of Seychelles
