Seven days, ten locations, 2,500 kilometers, across Kenya, to create eight new signature shots of the country I call home. Follow me as I go on a journey to reveal a new perspective on Kenya, all the way from the top of Huawei/Safaricom cell towers.

Before even coming close to a telecommunication cell tower, professional training and certification is a must. As is with the compulsory safety gear which I wear to scale heights. All certified climbers are called Riggers. I guess you can call me a Rigger Photographer.

The view up here is like nothing else. It’s the first time anyone from the outside has been up to these mysterious communication towers. The very structures that connect our world is now giving us a new visual connection to modern Kenya.
