ORGANIZER: Pierrick

Brian Otieno Photo Exhibit

THE STORY:

Project Kenya had the immense honor and pleasure to exhibit for the first time in the US the amazing photography of Brian Otieno, an emerging and talented photographer who grew up in Kibera, one of the largest slums in Africa.

His Kibera storiesgoes beyond the chaotic appearance of the environment and focuses on a vibrant community full of life and colors. Brian is the recipient of many photography awards and exhibited in Paris and Berlin last October. He has been selected to participate in the New York Times Portfolio Review in March 2019. Arte TV presented his work with the ballet dancers in the slum in the Géo 360 documentary 'Kenya, Alors On Danse “. More recently, he was invited to Photoville NY and selected as one of the top seven emerging photojournalists by Reuters

Project Kenya presented Brian Otieno in New York in March 2019 and in Los Angeles in April 2019, and raised more than $50,000. All exhibited photographs are signed limited editions and a few are still available for purchase.


All proceeds will benefit the education of the children from Kibera and support the Red Rose Primary School and the Uweza Foundation, two organizations which welcomed several times Pierrick Gould. Both believe in giving children a good education, but also teaching them how to build life skills and developing their talents since it is the only reliable and sustainable route out of poverty for kids living in the Kibera slum. At Uweza's community center, everyone in need can find some help and support from sponsorships to mentorships, from the soccer academy to the dance or art programs. It is also a safe space for adolescent girls or young mothers who encounter many challenges in the slum. 


Let’s give every Kibera kid a chance to shine! 

Merci. Asante Sana. Thank you.
