With my portrait series I want to tell little stories about people in different parts of Kenya running a business. I want to correct western prejudices about the mentality of africans. I want to show strong, proud, ecouraged persones, moving forward their own country.
In October 2017 I was travelling arround the country to meet such people and to take portraits of them. I was listening to a lot of crazy stories. I found the fisherman, who is simply struggeling to survive. I meet the smart manager, founder of one of the biggest advertisement agencies in Nairobi. But in everyone I captured I saw the high motivation to improove the life by acting and not waiting.
