Keep driving

This is what a photo of  (my) fear looks like – taken from behind a blacked out (still moving) car window.  It’s the edge of the infamous dump in Dandora, a suburb of Nairobi. At 30 acres, it’s one of the world’s largest urban rubbish dumps, and a site of gang violence, pollution and daily desperation.

Dump Luckily for me, some professional photographers have got this place covered (have a look at the work of Sarah Elliot, Ulrik Pedersen, and David Mutua) – so I’ll probably stay inside the car, for now.
