The idea for this exhibition came about during a casual meet with East Taxi Kenya’s CEO Peng Chen. It was a mutual collaboration to highlight the lives of some of the most ubiquitous persons in society which most of us know absolutely nothing about, save for the entertaining (or not!) banter, the easy listening music and potpourri scented air freshener we are all too familiar with. They are group of closely knit people, a band, a fraternity of men and women that Louis got the opportunity to interact and bear witness to, from their perspective; a window into their lives. Although he just scratched the surface, this is the angle from which these images were taken, to capture the very essence of Nairobi’s Taxi drivers.
