Pineapple Man

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Claudine Swiatek

Pineapple Man originally chased the British founder of the children's home on Lwaji Island around with a machete, believing him - the first white man to ever visit the island nearly 15 years ago - to be a threat. Pineapple Man, who speaks no English, is now a firm and fast friend of the founder and can often be found around the children's home, helping or painting or enjoying a cup of tea with visitors.

Location: Lwaji Island, Lake Victoria, Uganda
