Islanders

In  2013, I started Share The Word Project with Seb Toussaint. When we visited Nairobi, one guy in Mukuru told us : “it’s like if we were trapped on an island, whatever we do we can’t escape and no one from the rest of the city comes here”.

These portraits were taken in slums around the world, in the cities of Cairo, Addis Abeba, Calais, Bogota, Katmandu, Rio, Manila and Nairobi.
