Various locations in Mtwara, paying attention to trees. Walking from place to place with a phone and a small recorder, a partial inventory was made, at a time of rapid change and intensive construction. The beauty of the vegetation stands out: its vulnerability allied to the vibrancy, resilience, and diversity of its contributions to these periurban settings. As an unrealized proposal for tagging, conserving or some other response, the series gives rise, perhaps, to entangled feelings of exhaustion and exhilaration.
