Kenyan architect by trade-turned-digital conceptual photographer Osborne Macharia has quite the imagination.
The Cannes Lions-prize-winner knows how to wrap fans around his finger with fictional, avant garde works such as Kabangu: Kenyan collective of eccentric hip-hop grandpas and Nyane: Kenya’s league of extraordinary grannies.
Macharia keeps us guessing with his latest editorial, capturing little people warriors of fanciful fight club network, Mengo, who brawl every month in an abandoned warehouse located in Nairobi, and as part of illegal fight clubs sponsored by former combatants around the globe. We meet four fighters Dudus, Sonko, Mrefu, Mangaritos, each with a unique backstory including exhaustive training since five-years-old, who form the elite Kenyan battle squad.
Across the globe, the International Dwarf Awareness Day is an opportunity that the SSSK wishes to address the major challenges, create awareness and seek the solutions to the problems affecting its Members with strategic plans of addressing their plights especially the youth. Indeed the challenges continue to emerge in most young people who have to cope with their prevailing problems such as unemployment, neglect, discrimination, violence, sexual abuse, alcohol and drugs.
