On any corner… Nairobi.

CBD… the Central Business District of Nairobi, always referring to the older part of Nairobi ‘in town’ now that the city has begun to spread.  The new business activity is on the edges of Nairobi, where the middle class is growing and real estate investment is in a frenzy.  In town there is a sense of another time.  Space is at a premium and the streets are alive with business, surrounded by wonderful 1970’s architecture, always busy, colourful but in a muted way, and packed with detail, hence the technique applied to these images.  Every time you turn, a new set of bodies, different surroundings… on any corner.
