A Photographer’s Mission to Capture a New Image of Africa

Photography has a unique way of changing perceptions of a place, simply by presenting images that we’ve never seen before. It is exactly this characteristic that motivates Mutua Matheka’s work. Africa is often depicted as a continent plagued by war, disease and famine. So the Kenyan photographer set out to explore and capture his country (and Africa in general) from new heights—literally. Recently, Matheka completed a project in which he climbed multiple communication masts, some as high as 300 feet tall, in an effort to photograph Africa from a rarely seen perspective. With this project and his ongoing work, he hopes to expand the world’s understanding of Africa.

This Great Big Story was made in partnership with Huawei.
