Photographer's Note

This old lady, she claims to be 103 years of age, lives on the island of Pate in the Lamu Archipelago.
Her name is MZEE OMAR MJUMBE
She sits in her mud hut, hands fluttering incessantly over her dress and recites Swahili poetry to anyone who cares to listen.

This is one:

"Once I was pretty like a garland of flowers,
When they tired of me I was spiced rice without the spice,
They still take me,
I am alright, they are satisfied.

I am the good one, the righteous,
I am the chosen of my people,
I am the remedy, you take me, you are healed."
