The Kenyan Crisis

The Kenyan Crisis

In 2008, I spent three and a half months in Kenya, covering the ethnic violence that escalated after a contentious election. East Africa’s most stable and burgeoning democracy descended into chaos, exposing large cracks in the system, deep wounds historic inequalities have left untreated. Some called it political genocide, others said it teetered on civil war. Either way, it’s a raw look at the face of street justice, and the brutalities that accompany it, in a society that largely lacks juridical recourse.

Crisis on the Border

Crisis on the Border

I spent a month wandering around the desert of Eastern Chad where a quarter million Darfur refugees are sustained by international aid agencies. European troops had just arrived under UN mandate to mount a peace-keeping mission to protect aid workers, locals and refugees from bandits and violence spilling over the border with Sudan. Darfuris fled a conflict over basic resources in Sudan 6 years ago, to a country already struggling with its own limitations, ushering Eastern Chad into a conflict of its own. The situation remains critical.

Color Me Night

Color Me Night

Summer 2012, I am invited by my good friend Armando Ribeiro to collaborate with Portuguese musician Pedro Gomes Marques for a group show at Casa das Artes in Tavira, Portugal. This body of work represents about 6 years of travel – sometimes on assignment, sometimes not, just photographing my immediate surroundings, always and only at night. It started two years ago as a book project while organizing my archives. It’s turned out to be an ongoing exploit, taking on different forms, such as this video.
