In 2011 I made a trip to Kenya. It was not a purely photographic journey, at least not entirely: we had planned a three-day safari in the parks of Tsavo East, Tsavo West and Amboseli and a week in Malindi.
These days I finally found the time and - most importantly - the desire to post producing photographs that I took. My personal preference for street photography has led me to begin to select these photos, which I modified as they were taken with Kodax Tri-X Pan black and white film. It is true that Kenya is full of colors, but I still preferred the simplicity and the direct language of black&white photography.
To take these photos I used my Nikon equipment and a local fixer to cross the poorest areas of Malindi, to which these photographs relate. Even there, away from mandatory routes of tourists, life goes slow. Poverty is widespread and deep, but the people are friendly, calm and they gladly accept a tip to be photographed. I hope you enjoy these images. Thank you.
