NASTASYA TAY + YIANNIS HADJIASLANIS
Across the old city of Lourenço Marques, in delapidated workers' clubs, glassed embassies, wood-panelled government offices, litter-strewn streets, schools and hostels, the capital's residents work, play and live.
Maputo holds a particular energy, a rested yet restive sensibility of perpetuity and change. In some of the city's oldest buildings, eccentric museums have emerged, around the corner from creaky wood murals in hotels where patrons pay by the hour. Streets away, imported architectural masterpieces and European Art Deco influences, across the road from those who have made deteriorating heritage sites their home.
This project seeks to document the easy, honest way in which the city's residents go about their everyday lives, in some of Maputo's most remarkable spaces.
Expected completion: Soon
