My Dream in Kenya

Friday, February 19, 2010

It has taken 25 years to realize this dream. Whether I become anyone’s champion is yet to be seen, but I do have a plane ticket in my hand for Africa. 

On February 26, I leave for Kenya and will be photographing the lives of women living in the slums of Nairobi and Kisumu who strive to provide their families with shelter, food, clean water, and education.

I have been invited to make portraits for a local non-profit group, The Pangea Network, which provides micro-enterprises for women in both Kenya and The Middle East. I also will be photographing for Amnesty International’s Demand Dignity Campaign. 

I invite you to follow this journey. Provided I am able to find internet services, I will upload images and share my experience. 

Amani na Asante,
