Mathare Valley in Nairobi, Kenya, sprawls in the equatorial sun, harsh and desperate. Six square miles of corrugated metal shacks overflow with half a million people. Here, children are born into deprivation, starvation, abuse, and disease. All the more startling, then, is the light and life in their eyes. Even the worst of this world cannot extinguish the flame of being made in the image of God. In Mathare Valley, the dignity and value of a human soul shines brighter than perhaps anywhere else in the world.

I am honored that two of my photos, Mathare Valley Children 2 & 3, were accepted into the Sunny Vista Art Exhibition in Colorado Springs, opening Friday night, 4-7:30 pm.
