Mama Musa (Malawi) by Tim Cowley

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…


Mama Musa spent her childhood in Mozambique, but moved to Malawi and lived there many years where she raised several kids with her husband, including Musa (seen here). Recently, her husband died and she has moved back to Mozambique, her homeland, though she doesn’t speak the national language (Portuguese). She is of the Yao tribe.

I live full time in Mozambique with my family (there’s six of us!) and shoot primarily documentary, landscape and environmental portraits. Available for freelance work. Check out www.Ajambule.com (that means “take my picture” in my part of the world) for more info.
