African Photojournalism Database
Brian Otieno is a freelance photojournalist that operates an online photo project called “KiberaStories” since 2013. He was raised in Kibera – Africa’s most vibrant, biggest shantytown in Nairobi, Kenya. He is also a graduate of Diploma in Journalism and Strategic Public Relations at the Multimedia University of Kenya (October, 2016).
Brian’s passion lies in capturing the visual realities of every life from the people around him, and telling their stories through online publications. His visual stories attempt to go beyond the chaotic appearance and to demonstrate the daily lives in Kibera from socio-economic, cultural, political and environmental perspectives. By doing so, Brian also tries to draw the attention of the public to understand the diversity, dynamics, and inequality of urban life as an observer who gives unique point of view through photography.
