Louis Nderi

The Hand of Fashion - - ART IS AT HAND -

Louis Nderi is a pho­tog­ra­pher from Nairobi. Hav­ing grown up in Swazi­land, he moved back to Nairobi in 2004 at which point he de­vel­oped a keen in­ter­est in art. Yet it was only at univer­sity that he truly dis­cov­ered pho­tog­ra­phy. Ever since, he has been pas­sion­ate about this medium through which he has de­vel­oped a true skill cap­tur­ing strik­ing por­traits of the peo­ple he meets.

“In my work I would like to show Africans in a pos­i­tive light, dif­fer­ent from what the main­stream me­dia show most of the time. I would hope to por­tray Africans as they al­ways have been. A warm, gen­er­ous and en­er­getic peo­ple.”
