Project Kenya Presents "Stories from Kibera"


Brian Otieno


Photojournalist and Documentary Photographer

Project Kenya is very proud to present "Stories from Kibera" for the first time in the US. We met Brian Otieno during our trips to Kibera. Born in 1993, Brian is a photojournalist raised in Kibera. In March 2019, Brian was selected to attend the New York Times Portfolio Review. At this occasion, Project Kenya decided to organise an exhibition of his photography in New York and then to invite him to Los Angeles for private showings and conferences.


Brian’s passion and commitment lie in capturing the visual realities and documenting the norm of everyday life from the people around him in his Kibera Stories. He attempts to go beyond the chaotic appearance and to  draw the attention of the public to understand the diversity, dynamics, and inequality of urban life as an observer with a unique point of view through photography.

In October 2016, Brian was selected for the World Press Photo East Africa Masterclass. He is also a contributor to Everyday Africa – a collective of photographers sharing images from across the continent aimed at undermining stereotypes and clichés.

In October 2018, Brian exhibited his project #KiberaStories in Paris and was also invited as a participant at the 16th International Dialogue on Population and Sustainable Development which took place in Berlin, to present his photographs on Women of Kibera, taken as part of the #RightByHer campaign.

In July 2019, Photoville NY and Focus Photo LA selected Brian to present his photography in New York. In September 2019, Reuter selected him as one of the best emerging photojournalists.
