Photographer's Note

Mozambicans are heavy on american history and presidents : Lincoln, Hamilton, Jackson, Grant they all knwo them but their prefered one is Franklin!

They like them with a big head... You've guessed I was speaking of dollar bills... Only big heads like the newer editions of the crispy dollars.

George Washington stinks. He's a looser for Mozambicans : he's got a small head.

The banks are so stupid that the George Washington 1USD note is useless because it's the only dollar bill with a small head. They won't change or use it.

The boss told'em "only big heads", so if you give them a dollar it should be a big head, even if it's fake one.

Meticais is the official money but wherever you go you pay with the green king... except for George, of course.

On a general thought, I've hardly seen people so much interested in money. Money is what people want.
They want money for a photo or they want money just beacuse they're the law or the police.

You want a proof? Here's a fisherman returning to Ilha fish market, who sells his catch to a buyer... Take a look at how the crowd stares at the handful of bank notes.

Money don't get everything it's true.
What it don't get I can't use.
So gimme money (that's what I want)
A little money (that's what I want)
That's what I want, ye-ye-yeh,
That's what I want.

Yeh gimme money (that's what I want)
A little money (that's what I want)
That's what I want (that's what I want)
So gimme money (that's what I want)
That's what I want, ye-ye-yeh,
That's what I want.
