Photographer's Note

Ng'ambo (literally, "The Other Side"; sometimes also referred to as the "New City") is one of the two main parts comprising Zanzibar City, the other being the historical Stone Town. Ng'ambo is much larger and more modern than Stone Town, with office buildings and large apartment blocks, as well as slum areas.
The place is mostly known for the Plattenbauten, which are large apartment blocks that have been built here in the late 1960s and early 1970s with the aid of East Germany, after the Zanzibar Revolution.
