Topic Summary:

African Lens

The #Kenya365 Instagram Project is a photo project conceived by Erik Hersman, Mutua Matheka and Eston Whitfield to "find interesting shots" of daily life in Kenya. The unscripted nature of Instagram "street" photography can potentially rewards us with a multi-faceted view of life in Kenya.  The project has already produced some rather interesting views - from shots of children headed to school in the early hours of the morning, mouth watering local delicacies to beautiful revealing portraits.  This is the way things are, as captured by the roving lenses of participants of this project. If you are in Kenya, Erik & Co will gladly like you to join in. Simply tag your instagram shots from Kenya with #kenya365.  It ends on Aug 31, 2013.  

It is not yet clear what the project owners intend to do with this ( a wonderful exhibition will be cool ), however, with kind permission from Erik, AfricanLens intends to curate and post some of the most interesting shots submitted on a monthly basis. Kudos to Erik & friends for such a wonderful idea.

South African Township Barbershops & Salons

From the rural communities of Dzanini, close the border of Zimbabwe, through to neighborhoods of Khayelitsha in Africa's southern most city, the informal barbershop and hair salon play an important part in township life. These businesses are a place where getting your hair cut or styled is sometimes an afterthought. - Simon Weller. View This Gallery
