Cyanotypes / Sunprinting in Africa

I'm baaaccckkk!

And, while I missed this place -and all technology really- while in Africa, I must say I'd give it all up to back in Kenya. I fell in love with a country, a people and a place.

There is so much to say and so much to write. I'm already in the process of gathering notes and details to share with you.

But, in the meantime, I thought you might enjoy watching this little video wherein kiddos in Lodwar, Kenya (one of the top ten most remote places on the planet) learn how to make cyanotypes/sunprints.

They speak a mix of Turkana and Swahili with a spot of the Queen's English and I speak American English. . . So, we didn't do too much language communication which taught me a lot about teaching (that I will share with you later).

Enjoy!
