In The Driver Seat – A Collaboration With Easy Taxi AND Louis Nderi
A visual journey that documents the lives and experiences of taxi drivers all over Nairobi.
This photo exhibition is not your ordinary exhibition – it is a visual journey that documents the lives and experiences of taxi drivers all over Nairobi. For most of us, the taxi experience begins when you step into the vehicle and ends when you step out. But have you ever wondered what these drivers get up to when the passengers aren’t there?
Through these photos, we hope to offer you a glimpse into the life and times of these drivers and that they will serve as a beautiful memoir of the brave, unique, and beautiful men and women behind the wheel that transport Nairobi’s citizen’s day in and day out.
The Exhibition opens on the 27th of February from 5pm to 11pm and will run until the 13th of March. The Shifteye Gallery that is located at The Priory Place on the ground floor on Argwings Kodhek Road in Kilimani.
