Life Support Japan

My image, Untitled from the series Lakehouse, is being auctioned by Wall Space Gallery, for Life Support Japan. The funds raised will be divided between two charities - Direct Relief International providing medical supplies to the earthquake and tsunami victims and Habitat for Humanity helping to rebuild the communities in northern Japan. Please support this amazing cause! Thank you!

Photography is my life. One of the most powerful tools in the world is a camera, it has been used to bring down dictators, change society and influence change. I strive to create vibrant, interesting and unusual images of the world we live. My life mantra is "living my life to make a difference" and l make the difference through my work as a social documentary photographer.

Amidst the violence that followed the 2007 election in Kenya, l falsified my identity and risked my life to photograph the atrocities my countrymen were inflicting on one another.
