Local Fishing

Artist: Thokozani Mphonde

Medium: Photography

Artist Statement: In Malawi, Africa, we can see the local fishing process. Observe locals dragging in their lake net. It was cast in the early hours of the morning and is now brought back, in late afternoon. They separate the fish into different kinds, clean it & set it out to dry or take them to the marketplace to be sold.


Artist Biography: #Connected2: Climate and Food Systems is created by GOAL’s NextGen Youth members from across Ireland, Ethiopia, Honduras, Malawi, Uganda, and Zimbabwe. Through the pertinent themes of Global Food Systems and Climate Change, participants learned how each relates to global citizenship and development. They created this photo exhibition to share their learnings with you and hope to raise awareness of how climate change is affecting our food systems.
