JIP 106: Anwar Sadat

Anwar Sadat: Kenyan photographer documenting untold stories

Anwar is a documentary photographer based in Nairobi, Kenya. His work focuses on sharing unnoticed and overlook stories in his community. Most of his work is around the neighborhood of Kibera, which is the largest urban slum in Africa.

Through his photographs, he wants to show another side of the people living there, and a different side of his country. Plus show a different side to the African continent which is too often confined to negative stories around poverty, famine, wars, corruption and diseases.

In this episode Anwar shares with us where his passion for photography comes from, the hard work needed to get a camera and start working as a professional photographer. Despite a tumultuous childhood in an unstable home, Anwar stayed motivated and focused on his goals.
