The Shoemaker

Shoemaker from Mathare

When visiting a slum like the Mathare Valley in Nairobi you expect misery, but may not be prepared for the thriftyness and the eagerness to carve out a living against the odds of your surroundings. You might be surprised to find out that most people just want to get about their lives, work to make things better and try to make life as easy as possible. My heart goes out to all those who still keep it on, against all odds. And it beats me that I’m one of the damn lucky ones.
