“Katosi is located on the northern shore of Lake Victoria, just a few kilometres above the Equator. The name of this small Ugandan village means ‘Place of Loam’. The people here survive on fishing or simple agriculture. The landscape is green, fruitful and beautiful to see. It’s like paradise. However, an AIDS epidemic hit the village with the arrival of the new millennium, many people died and, apparently, around 70 percent of the inhabitants are now HIV virus carriers.

If there is any possibility whatsoever to improve the living conditions there, then the key is in education. I visited Katosi in September 2016. The aid organisation, Visions for Children, supports the St, John Bosco School there and had asked me to document the project. I have known this aid organisation for a number of years. The outcome of the pictures taken with an M240, is a small photo book in a limited edition of 100 copies. I financed this publication with my own funds. The proceeds of the sale of the photo book will go in their totality to supporting Visions for Children and the St. John Bosco School.“

Die Kinder von Katosi (The Children of Katosi, 36 pages, 29 black and white pictures, 18x25 cms) is available at maltemetag.photography for 13.45 euros (including postage within Germany).
