The World Through My Eyes

Photographs by young Mozambicans.


Lázaro Jacob Chauke was born on July 3rd, 1987, in the village of Chigubo located in Gaza province. When he was six years old he left for South Africa with his parents. Three years later he returned home only with his mother because his father chose to stay and work there. He spent his childhood taking care of cows and hunting small birds. In 2003, he finished 7th grade school but couldn't continue due to lack of financial conditions. He is one of eight children and plays football for fun.

"I liked the course because it was easy. Now I know everything - how to use manual and digital cameras; speed, focus, zoom, etc. I would like to thank my teachers Blake, Marcílio and Anita and say that I want to continue because I am learning something special. My mother and brothers can't do what I can."
