Vote for Kibera
Guests: Donwilson Odhiambo
Tibet Open House - Audience Centrum, Školská 28, Prague 1
This exhibition proceeds from the eponymous film shot in one of Africa’s largest slums.
The photographer, Donwilson Odhiambo, was born and raised in Kibera. Whilst he was growing up, he started to view the surrounding world through a camera lens, later becoming a photo-blogger and adding short commentaries to his photos. He tries to capture images of life in the difficult conditions of poverty and deprivation with all of its colourfulness and variety in a balanced manner. Don is the young hope of African photography, and his photos are slowly finding their way to the global public. Currently, he is preparing for an exhibition being organised by World Press Photo’s African Photojournalism Database in New York and for the LUMIX Festival for Young Photojournalism in Hannover.
The official opening of our exhibition, with the participation of the photographer, will take place at 6 pm on 7 March.
