Kenyan photographer Osborne Macharia was commissioned by the Telecom provider Safaricom to shoot for their 2016 calendar “This Is My Kenya,” he knew it was going to be a challenge — but a welcomed one.
The images often seen of Africa portray disease, war and famine. But the continent, and its diverse people, encompass so much more. Macharia wanted his photo series to beautifully illustrate that.
“I want to show that Africa is more than the land of poverty, crime, disease and complete wildlife,” the photographer says.
