Being a photographer living with Kenyans for a long time, I had an obligation in my mind that I should work on a series showing the souls and spiritual aspects of Kenyans. Neighbors and friends stood wearing black shirts in front of a dark backdrop. Minimal natural lighting exposed the faces alone. With their eyes closed, more room for contemplation would be available for the viewers. Black is more than a color it is a space where all things came from. My series tries to manifest souls and spirits beyond faces; invisible may be more valuable than visuals surrounded by discrimination and bias.
