In 2019, after having worked in Vietnam, Japan, Mali, India and Ethiopia, Jean-Baptiste Huynh launched his new travel photography project dedicated to Kenya. The artist examines the importance of aesthetics through the ancestral ceremonies and rites of the tribes of this country, notably living alongside the Masai, the Samburu and the Turkana peoples. As with each of his photographic expeditions, Jean-Baptiste Huynh seeks to offer an authentic portrait of Kenya through the faces of its inhabitants, the study of still lives and emblematic objects of the country as well as through its mineral, vegetal and animal worlds.
