Photography from Africa

It’s Day 6 of the 10-day Parallel Lives programme and the focus is on Photography from Africa.

I caught up with two old friends in Nairobi, Kenya……John Wambugu & Joel Lukhovi .

We’ve done lots of projects together over the years and one thing we always discuss is the representation of Africa in the media, and the role that photographers can play in challenging some of the stereotypes.
