Photographer Kate Magee spent two years living in Kenya, splitting her time between the capital city of Nairobi, the oasis of Mombasa, and the Northern desert. In visiting those areas, she learned how diverse the country is, and ultimately created a new narrative about Kenya that she had not seen or heard elsewhere.
Kate shares: “No matter what region I visited in Kenya, there were always things that would make me nervous (like scorpions!), but I had to keep remembering why I went in the first place: to show hope and beauty in places where others may only see darkness. I needed to believe that there was beauty in order to see it and to capture it.”
