Dagmar van Weeghel – Upweke, 2016
Portrait of Lish, a young Kenyan woman who moved to Europe a few years ago. To fit into this new place that Lish finds herself, she battled with identity issues and a disconnection from her roots . Mombasa Blues explores the challenges of coping with different identities, cultures, absence of family and traditions.
This body of work was taken in the Dutch Countryside in Summer but the natural environment resembled Lish's homeland with the soothing Kenyan coastline colors.
