What Does Zimbabwe Look Like? Part I : Concession, Mashonaland Central Province.

I am currently visiting my home country Zimbabwe. A major frustration many Zimbabweans encounter is the image of our country is monopolised by hunger, political strife and poverty. The most common question posed (after a loaded demand for our thoughts on the President), is a concerned query on the state of the country. Even under difficult situations life carries on. Our country is more than a headline, more than a dictator, more than cash shortages. Taking photographs allows me to explore, rediscover familiar beauty and learn something new.

So, what does Zimbabwe look like? Part I features photographs from my Sekuru’s farm in Concession, which is a 30-minute drive from the capital city Harare. On sunny Saturday afternoons as these, one almost forgets the violence waged for ownership of these stunning farmlands.
