Dona Cadu

Portrait of an artist - the amazing Dona Cadu. A portrait of strength, of laughter, of an incredible life. Dona Cadu will be 103 this April. 103! I have stopped in to her ceramics studio many times before, but, it seems from my archive, this year was the first time I photographed her - I have no idea why. Dona Cadu is a legend around the area and an amazing soul, greeting me with love and laughter as if old friends reunited again. She gave me such an amazing hug as I left that I will cherish this moment for forever. ❤️ 

I could write a post on her ceramics and her history but I found this article from 2019 By Tarisai Ngangura that is much more than anything I could share - please click through and read :)
