Real People of East Africa

From 2016 - 2017 I made four trips through Kenya and Tanzania - travelling over land by minibus, motorbike taxi or on foot. Not to search for something, but to meet the existing, was a great adventure. This photo & text book is about the people I met along my way. They talk about what concerns them: success, failure, love, hope... everyday life. The photos show the people in their living or working environment. And always at eye level. Comming out soon at Photo Edition Berlin. With Essays from Alexis Malefakis and Meja Mwangi. Hardcover. 24 x 21 cm, 112 Pages, 49 images. Language: German/English.
