Love the graphic nature of this image by Lance Larson @samizdatfilms
, a Los Angeles-based photographer and participant in last year’s @viiphoto
"Rising Fast" workshop in Nairobi, Kenya with myself and @dannywilcoxfrazier
. Join us this year: September 14 - 21, 2019!
’Rising Fast’ is a complete immersion into photography and storytelling right here in my home city, and the place where Danny began his career. During the week you will use Nairobi as a canvas to produce an in-depth visual essay on the aspect of the city's dynamism that most engages you.
I’ll be sharing some really inspiring work by past workshop participants this week. Lance's series explores the challenges Nairobians face while moving through their burgeoning city. A paucity of public transportation options colliding with an increasing number of private vehicles has overburdened Nairobi's infrastructure, resulting in the longest commute times of any city on the continent.
We also have four scholarships available for photographers from Kenya, Burundi, Ethiopia, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania or Uganda. Just follow the link below, and reach out with any questions. Scholarship applications close August 15.
Hope to see you there, and follow the link in my profile for more details or to sign up!
