Samburu, Kenya - 9,338 miles from Arizona
This collection was captured on my fortieth birthday trip on safari in Kenya. It was a whirlwind eight-day journey, traversing through the countryside by car. We drove through gorgeous towns and villages, where we were completely immersed in the country and its culture.
During that trip, I was blessed to spend a day with the Samburu people, hearing their stories and capturing their images in vivid color. As I met with these incredible women and girls, I found myself in my very own AHA moment. This is my favorite collection because it marks the moment I found my calling. As a photographer and activist, my soul’s purpose is to share the beauty and magnificence of other ways of life, so that we can all understand and support each other as one human family.
As a result of my photography work in Kenya, I partnered with Save Samburu; a charity that helps to peer educate at the village level, empower women and create a more equal society. Each piece donates a portion of its proceeds back to the women and girls of Samburu. Thank you for supporting this work and participating in the creation of a more equitable world.
