1993, Nairobi, Kenya
Plate 18, 27x18
Africa is a place of contrast, but it seems quite impossible to see all the parts. The people living in this Kariobangi slum area of Kenya are poor, and their clothing is quite worn and frayed, yet the children always showed up at this school quite tidy and clean. In school the children seemed somewhat behaved, but as we saw them around the neighborhood, they seemed rowdy and loud, and the school clothes were not on display.
Africa is edging away from the indigenous old continent looking towards the Europeans, yet one small step at a time—no large leaps.
