Prints Prints Prints

Hey there. Been a while I must say. First post of the year. Not to worry though. The absence has been worthwhile and you’ll get to see why soon. This post is more of a formal announcement that I have been thinking about for a long time. I never really thought about its significance until quite recently. I guess this will be one of those major steps in my creative venture. Over the past year I have been taking photos that some of you have been very keen on. Some never saw the light of day on the internet and some did. The response towards them was amazing. Here now is the chance to own some of those photos in framed A4 and A3 size prints. There are a limited number of photos available that will go really well in your house, office, restaurant you name it.

The prints will be going at a flat rate of KES 2500 ($25) for the A4 size framed prints and KES 3500 ($35) for the A3 size framed prints. For orders and any questions please drop a comment below or send me an email at nairobiann@gmail.com. Free delivery of these prints will be available within the Nairobi CBD. Pick any of the photos below that you would love to get yourself a print of. Thank You for the support this far. Peace. Continue Reading →

Looking Back at 2015.

Well hasn’t this been an interesting journey. So much has happened over the year I don’t even know where to start. Very good friendships and contacts have been made, This has been a year of lots of self discovery that has made me shape up my craft as the year progressed. This is not to forget the massive creative block I had for majority of the final half of the year, but it is lifting and more work will be put out in the coming year. A number of challenges however arose that for some time almost crippled my creative journey but from those challenges I rose up even more energized to make more art. A number of landmark achievements have been made too, including having the opportunity to meet one of New York’s best photographers José Silva. This was just one among many and I will share some of them with you. Continue Reading →

The Nairobi National Park

Hey there. You remember when I said that I will try to be consistent with my blogging… Yeah, that didn’t work out quite as I hoped. But I’m back with something that I am so excited to share with you guys. So a couple of weeks back I was involved in a project that literally pushed my creativity to some heights I never thought I would achieve. This is because I was documenting kids that are as young as 4 years old, doing what they do best, having fun. On one of the days they had the opportunity to go for a game drive at the Nairobi National Park. I was super excited about this since it would be the first time I was going there, ever since I started my photography. Continue Reading →

Blended

Hello there, today I have something different to show you guys. Everyday we wear our outfits due to various reasons. Some for work, some to impress that person conducting their interviews, others to look cool for school, others to make sure that they look their best when they go on that special date with that special someone. Many times we never notice that what we wear is actually a perfect match with the environment around us. Continue Reading →

Street Tales: The Beginning.

Hey guys, it has been a really long time since I updated this blog. Yes I have excuses, No I choose not to share them, as they are just excuses. During my time off, I have been really thinking on how I will make this blog a one stop shop for Art and Creativity both in my writing and my photography. And as the ideas came into mind, one of the main reasons as to why I started this blog in the first place came up. Documenting stories (mostly made up) of strangers and when the opportunity arises, get a story from them in the process. Street Tales was thus born. The time had come for it to be show itself to the world. I hope this segment inspires something in any of my readers in whatever way. Continue Reading →

Oloolua: The Forest Within The Suburbs.

So its been a while. Can’t really think of anything credible to explain my inconsistency. But I apologize for it. A lot has happened between the time I have been out. Traveled a bit, learnt a lot and school became intense. But other than that, lets get back to my subject matter. So in March, a few friends and myself went out to the leafy suburbs of Karen to explore the Oloolua Forest. Now do keep in mind that this is one of the few remaining forests within the heavily built Nairobi Area. This makes it endangered by its own rights and utmost care of the forest should be ensured at all times to curb any attempt of encroachment. Continue Reading →

Up, Up and Away

Hey guys, hope you all have been good. Pretty good month we have had so far. Hope the same goes out to you. I must say this has been one really exciting month. Trying new aspects of photography and fields too. Will be showcasing some of my projects with you guys. That means there may be a slight change in how the posts will be. Hope you will enjoy it. Please feel free to leave a comment on how the posts will be. Well, back to my subject today, lets stop and look up and tell a story of what we see above us. No matter where you are look up. Then try to perceive what you see above you in a different light than you did before. Continue Reading →

The Nairobi Railway Museum

Happy new month everyone. I will try and keep these posts as constant as possible. With the start of the new month, I have a new interesting feature which was made possible by a random pop up instameet (A photography meeting by people on Instagram) which was held last Friday at the Railway Museum in Nairobi. One of the things I like about such instameets  is the exposure they give one as a photographer  or an upcoming photographer and also a good forum to learn from other more experienced photographers. The Nairobi Railway Museum is a very unique museum as it mainly showcases the old rail machinery that were mostly used during the colonial period. The displays portray a very different type of story of the colonial period as it mainly shows how the development of the country started and progressed from the old locomotives to the ‘new’ ones that we see today.

A City of Patterns

Hello 2015 :)… Well it’s almost the end of January so that’s one resolution am not living by. Hope I will be more consistent in the coming months that follow. Hope you all had a good start of the year so far. It has been an interesting time where observation has been taking up a big chunk of my time. One thing that has stood out to me is how patterns play an important role in the structures we see around us. The different forms of architecture that are represented by the buildings we see everyday revolve around very unique patterns. Actually not only the buildings but almost everything we see from the pavements to the highly complex patterns we see on buildings. Continue Reading →
