My Toughest Shot: Joshua Paul

Dhows off Mozambique     Photo: Joshua Paul

I'd just finished shooting an assignment for Outside, where I photographed the first descent of Mozambique's Lugenda River, dodging hippos, crocs, and a black mamba. I was exploring Ilha de Moçambique when I saw these dhows—basically water taxis—come in from the ocean to pick up a new load of passengers. The light was right and I ran to the beach, but I was only able to snap a few frames as they left. I felt like I could have been taking the same photo 200 years ago.
