LightBox: Expressions of Hope from Young Women in the Kibera Slum of Nairobi (Non-Fiction)
by Allyson Murphy, Emily Verellen
Emily Verellen (2006)
LightBox is comprised entirely of photographs taken by Binti Pamoja’s members and essays they have written to accompany those photos. All of the pictures were taken with disposable or simple point-and-shoot cameras during the period of 2002-2004. Most of the photographers had never before held a camera. Their expressions offer a candid look at the lives of young women in poverty. 100% of proceeds from LightBox support The Binti Pamoja Center Scholarship Fund, which helps Binti Pamoja members attend high school.
