Mombasa Beach

Shot on assignment for DIE ZEIT, 2014

On the beaches around Mombasa at the Kenyan coast, young local men (also called beachboys) and elderly European women meet. Both sides are looking for something: For the women it might be love or some long lost excitement they don’t seem to find anywhere, while for the men it is rather a business. The relationships established often show significant inequalities in age, money and culture.
