The Akambaa Handicrafts Cooperative Society in Mombasa. A factory of sorts where all of the workers (aparently) belong to a single tribe. They are all tecnically self empolyed, carving work to be sold through the on site shop as well as being sold to other shops all over the country and even exported internationally. Some of the workers carve and some finish the carving with polish and animal bone.




As i was taking this photo, the people in the next hut starting calling out "Obama, Obama, Obama". Locally to the factory there is a road that has beeen named obama road.

Great use of B&W here. Lovely contrast and lighting.
