Shootback: Photos by Kids from the Nairobi Slums
Shootback puts basic point-and-shoot cameras into the hands of 32 teenage boys and girls from Mathare, Nairobi, one of Africa's largest slums. This book documents the extraordinary results: provocative, compelling images and hand-written words which reveal unexpected sides of these teenager's lives. The photographs speak eloquently of friends, family life, football fever and the harsh realities of everyday life in the slums with hope, an infectious humor and a disarming sense of honesty which shakes us into new perspectives on the developing world. Edited by documentary photographer Lana Wong and published with the support of the Ford Foundation, this visceral photographic collage challenges traditional tourist images of Africa and uses photography as a truly democratic art.
