  • Through the Eyes of ExoLens, Natalia in Tanzania

    maggio 19, 2016

    Natalia Horinkova's unique images of Australia have made a her a rapidly rising star in the photography world. Recently, she was named one of Buzzfeed’s “Top Instagrammers You Need To Follow” in addition to being featured on Instagram's own feed to over 110 million followers. We were thrilled when Natalia said she was heading to Tanzania and wanted to bring her iPhone 6 and ExoLens along to chronicle the journey.

    Slovakia to Australia, and now Tanzania, Nata, as her friends call her, is most comfortable with life on the road. She traveled half way around the world to Tanzania to work with Raleigh International — an organization dedicated to help develop sustainable communities throughout the world. For three months, Nata worked on projects to, improve water, sanitation, child care, and hygiene in Tanzania.

    Here is her journey through her own ExoLens:

    A sea farmer is returning back home from her farm after hours collecting seaweed in Zanzibar. Here, women mostly farm or collect oysters, wild clams and cockle. They can’t swim so their day depends on the heights of tides.

    She said, "You can follow me but my journey is too long.”

    Chacha only caught 3 fish, but no complaints. It was time to go... With the wind at our back, we were able to sit down and just relax on our way back to shore.

    Tanzania, where the dirt is orange just as a setting sun and where women carry their baskets on their head so gracefully. I’m confused…there is no ocean anywhere near by and I am still in love with this place. They say if you want to get to know the country you are traveling through well, forget airplanes, buses, trains or cars; do it by walking. We trekked through Tanzania with our bags packed. There isn't any Russian food, but always a good mood and amazing views.

    We call this place ‘Geological Heaven’. It was lunchtime on our second day of trekking when we reached this place. It was hot -- so hot that sweat washed off my sunscreen from the back of my legs and I ended up with the most ridiculous tan lines. Standing in front of this magnificent view made me forget everything. The most amazing thing is that when the rain season started, all these rocks changed shape.

    I love mornings. I love to wake up before the sun does. In the village called Illolo, we had tea plantains that I loved, especially in the mornings when the sun touched the tea leaves and they changed color from dark, almost grey-green into beautiful grass-green. Only then when my ease focused on the leaves, I noticed people walking in the background towards avocado farms for an early start.

    Here, boys are sitting around the fire in the school kitchen and waiting for water to boil while it gets a bit warmer on a rainy day. The rainy season in Tanzania has started but our work did not stop because of it. A group of volunteers are building a ‘rocket stove’ in the next room.

    In every village, we had our volunteers and we had our ‘lunch mama’. She cooked delicious meals for us that mainly contained rice or ugali, beans and some greens. Kitchens in the villages are very simple -- usually a small room with a small window, no furniture and a dirt floor. I remember in one village, mama was very happy about redoing her kitchen with new cement on the ground.

    We emptied a classroom in the primary school in Didia so we could fit in 90 kids aged between three and six. It was a big day for us, telling all these little ones about hygiene and sanitation and teaching them a playful hand-washing song to remember to wash their hands every time they use the loo. I haven’t seen so much joy in one class -- they all sat and listened for nearly two hours.
