In the summer of 2014 Ike Edeani spent four weeks travelling between Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania documenting the work of Mama Hope, a non-profit global development organisation. While there, he kept a photo-diary of the people and places he was meeting and experiencing which he has now compiled as Karibu Tena – meaning ‘Welcome Back’ in Swahili, a site for both his photographs and diary records of the trip.
Ike’s trip saw him working alongside farmhands fishing for tilapia, being overfed in rural villages and travelling among vast swathes of people en route to safari in Patagonia jackets. His photographs depict these moments in between, of his life and those around him. They show the character of a place without a sense of being either too withdrawn or interfering.
