Mr. Njoroge had plenty of stories to tell and especially how the delivery of the images worked, delivering the milk to education headquarters for a later distribution in schools was one of his greatest moments.

“Most people think of history and civilization as being made and created by men, but often, history and the development of human societies and civilizations are drastically altered by the introduction of an influential catalyst. Some of those influential catalysts from our past are fire, the wheel, metal, agriculture, religion, and written language but one is missing in the typical history books and it comes in the form of an animal.” -Equine Heritage Institute

Chinga Dam: The Making Of

I reached out to Lucy Nyawira sometimes back and asked her if we could go out for a boat ride in Nyeri County, Central Kenya. Lucy was a finalist in 2016 Mr and Miss Albinism Kenya.  These images part of a bigger visual concept about a woman who wants to break free from her past life and find new inspiration and meaning in her life.

Drifting away in the the cold, deep waters, with two fishing boats, was one of the best experiences. 😊 The only thing I can't forget about Chinga dam is its beautiful, silent and almost still life and the breathtaking view that was made perfect by the Aberdare Ranges in the background.

I liked the low leaking light that cut across the trees, it was purely magical.
