Ikuza is one of the many islands home to the transient fishing population on Lake Victoria – poor, plagued by disease and host to a thriving commercial sex work industry that has grown in parallel with the fishermen’s periodic tenancy on the island. Daily, fishermen dry their catch of small fish, or ndagaa, on the hot ground while huge marabou storks sweep in great arcs overhead and children play in the streets. These photos document life on Ikuza, including the consequences of a great irresponsible fire that broke out one night, burning a quarter of the shantytown and killing a handful of people, including children.
