A YOUNG photographer’s photo diary of life in the Kenyan wilds is going on display.

Malachi Kelly spent time in orphanage Sure 24 in national parkland Nakura to get his intimate snaps of everyday life for less advantaged communities.

From daydreaming pupils to gossiping women under the shelter of the shade, the 17-year-old artist aimed to capture elements of a life surprisingly similar to our own, while at the same time worlds apart.

The young photographer also spent time in the wildlife-dense regions of the national park to take intimate shots of zebra, giraffes and wild birds among other natural scenes.

The exhibition promises to offer something of a child’s perspective on a part of the world that continues to draw fascination for its rich fauna and lush landscapes.

All proceeds will go directly to Sure 24.

The photos will be shown at The Rag Factory, in Heneage Street, Shoreditch from November 20 to 21 from 11am to 6pm.
