In the Kawangware slum, Nairobi

Kawangware Revisited II (Pic du Jour)

This was taken in the Kawangware estate, one of the largest slums in Nairobi, so by default among the largest in sub-Saharan Africa. Densely populated, it’s home to more than half a million people. When I prepped for this photo of two players on a local club soccer team, they were stoic, taking on a very, very serious pose. Then I asked them to smile and they quickly, effortlessly obliged.
