You’re invited to an exclusive print sale at Upepo Photography Gallery of rare independence-era African photography by Priya Ramrakha, one of Kenya’s first photojournalists.
Ramrakha was one of the most prolific photographers of Africa’s independence movements in the 1950s and 1960s. After he was killed on assignment in Biafra, Nigeria in 1968, his photographic legacy seemed to evaporate. Four decades later in Nairobi, Kenya, we found his prints and negatives, covered in dust and all but forgotten. We then spent over ten years compiling his archive of more than 100,000 images from around the globe.
