Photo shoots in Pakistan, Nigeria and Kenya

This year, I was offered an amazing opportunity to travel to Pakistan, Nigeria and Kenya. 

I was delighted to be asked by Kieran Battles from Spooner Fitzgerald to take the photos for his client Reall 'investors and innovators in affordable housing'

Along with director Andy from Olas Roe + cameraman Eric Huyton, we set off to Lahore + Faisalabad followed shortly to Abuja + Nairobi.

My brief was largely informed by the filming script, 'A home for human potential' Documenting the issues of homelessness, poor living conditions and the steps towards solutions. 

We had such a warm welcome from everyone we met, below is just a small selection of photos from the 3 trips.

From Reall website:

"In the time it takes you to read this one sentence 13 people will be added to the worlds urban population.
In every minute that follows 155 children, women and men will follow in their footsteps
Little if any shelter awaits them. They are not alone"

The new housing estates we visited were a complete contrast to slum areas above.
The houses are modest with gardens, allotment areas plus communal space for sports, play and picnics etc.
Most have come from crowded cramped conditions so really appreciate the benefits of a safe, peaceful and healthy environment to raise their families.
