Strikingly Beautiful Photos of Kenya

Last we heard from photographer Diego Arroyo, he was traveling throughout Southeast Asia, capturing heartwarmingly beautiful portraits of strangers all across the land. On a recent trip to Kenya, Arroyo again wanted to portray the beauty of the country and its people, but this time he also wanted to check out the work some of his good friends were doing in a small town called Lamu.

As he tells us, “Years ago they founded Anidan, an NGO (non-governmental organization) that takes care of the needs of local children. On the island of Lamu, off the northern coast, they built a shelter where they now house one hundred children, but feed, dress, care for and educate over two hundred.

“It was a journey full of adventures and enriching experiences where I tried to depict the most real Kenya, the one you can’t easily find on the tourist routes. I especially enjoyed spending some days with the Samburu, semi-nomadic pastorialists related but distinct to the Maasai. They still maintain an amazing culture and its people seem to have a special kindness that inspired me in many ways.”
