Nairobi is a beautiful city and I’ve always wanted to show it in a unique way. From the skylines at sunset,
constant movement of people and machinery to the breathtaking views you get while crawling above Nairobi rooftops. Three years ago I came across a few time lapse videos that I found really interesting. The combination of time lapse imagery and amazing cityscapes seemed surreal. At the time I was also a bit frustrated with still pictures, as I felt they didn’t do justice to the amazing vistas and skies I could witness while on rooftops.
Time lapse seemed the perfect medium. So I did some research, dived right in, and was blown away by the first results I got. I immediately loved how they revealed patterns and details that had been there the whole time.It was an exciting new outlook on daily life.
After that I kept shooting and refining the process.I met Peter Irungu(my co-founder) sometime last year. He also loved shooting timelapses.We exchanged ideas and decided to collaborate on documenting Nairobi in a way never done before. From there on we moved from rooftop to rooftop looking for breathtaking views.
