This series of photographs depicts scenes from everyday life in a small village in central Kenya. There, people live at peace with nature and spend days dancing, hanging around with friends, and grazing animals.
One could wonder how anyone can be happy living without electricity, running water, or a regular job. Still, we spend our whole lives trying to be successful, feeling like we are not doing enough, and in this pursuit, we often forget what truly matters.
I believe that life is about connecting with others, feeling things deeply, being happy and grateful for what we have. I have never been as close to realising these things as when I visited this small village where, objectively speaking, people do not have much and yet they are so kind, welcoming, and fulfilled that it instantly warms your heart.
Life in African tribes could not be more different to what we know in the West and our first instinct when we hear about it might be to look down on them. Still, life is about getting to know other cultures. Every human, every social group is unique and we should never judge others negatively solely based on these differences.
