Tamina-Florentine Zuch: Zongo

Tamina-Florentine Zuch: Zongo
International Photography Grant 2019

In August 2012 the town of Hohoe witnessed violent riots between Christians and the Muslim minority. The residents of „Zongo“ (the so called Muslim area of every town in Ghana) and the Christians attacked each other, inflaming houses and shops. An unspecified number of people died. One year later Christians and Muslims live side by side again. In Peace. The two communities try to avoid each other as much as possible, although apart from their religion, the everyday life of each is not as different as they might like to think.

Tamina-Florentine Zuch –  born in 1990. Graduated highschool in 2007. Since 2011 study photojournalism and documentary photography in Hanover, Germany.
