50 ENCOUNTERS is an ongoing project that portrays people who are otherwise not perceived by the public. My first series covers average citizen of East Africa - in Swahili called "the mwananchi". I meet them along the way between Lake Malawi in southern Tanzania and Dadaab on the Kenyan border with Somalia. On the coast, in the highlands. In the savannah. Mostly in the rural. But always at eye level.
