Gichigi & Sons Photography

Owaahh

A photograph freezes a moment in time. Even a bad photograph. It is one of the few forms of art that can tell stories without moving across lines upon lines of detail. Yet good photos have so much detail that the human eye instinctively takes in, and the brain understands and translates, that beauty is […]

My Photographer Is Suicidal

My Photographer Is Suicidal

Williams Magunga

Here is what I think. I think Osborne is suicidal. I think when he sets out to do photography, he knows there is a fat chance that he might not live to see the next sunrise. Perhaps that is why he does everything to get a good shot of the sunset he sees. I think […]

Chalbi Desert Is Not To Be Trusted

Owaahh

Our team has a simple rhythm. The photographers are the hearty story tellers. Brian, our scout, sometimes goes quiet for prolonged periods of time, listening to music that doesnt climax, as Maureen said yesterday. She herself sits at the back of the Cruiser, mostly being creepy and mothering us all. Once in a while she […]

Flipping Maps

Owaahh

I had forgotten how grueling Capture Kenya is. The road to find captivating sceneries is long and gorgeous. It will, however, sap all your energy. All of it. Expending creative juices while you are on the road is not just draining, most times you need to actually push yourself. It really doesnt matter where you […]

Secrets of The Jade Sea

Owaahh

A man and his goats are walking across Turkana. The two male goats walk in front of him, stopping momentarily to browse between the rocks. The man doesnt stop. He only stops to take a sip of water, and then goes right back into what looks like a rather slow, deliberate, walk. He doesnt seem […]

Masakus Squares

Masakus Squares

Owaahh

You think you know Masaku, and then you see how dashing she looks in the night. Masaku will surprise you. The Peoples Park is already a marvel during the day but at night, when all its lights work in concert like a symphony, and as you drive towards Masaku, you realise it would be sacrilege […]

This Is My Kenya

Owaahh

We are going on an adventure!I think if Kenya was a woman she would be temperamental. Sometimes she would be tired, and sometimes angry, and sometimes enthusiastic about life. Sometimes she would be calm as a Catholic priest then other times she would scream her head off like one of those roadside preachers. Sometimes there […]

Photography is Not Easy My Friend

Williams Magunga

We had agreed that we would pick him up in the morning. We even shook hands like gentlemen. Except Fortune. He did not touch her. It is against either the Somali or the Muslim tradition for an old man with a flaming red beard to touch a woman in greeting; especially one with blonde hair […]

When The Hills Wept Fire

When The Hills Wept Fire

Williams Magunga

Current location report; Room 2L, Royal Docks Hotel in Migingo. A small nondescript centre just before Mtito Andei, where buses from Western going to Mombasa make a stop so that passengers can pee. There is nothing royal about this place except that it is the best hotel that we can find in this neck of […]
