It’s easy to take a photo, but what really made a difference was that I always knew how to find the right position, and I never was wrong. Their head slightly turned, a serious face, the position of the hands… I was capable of making someone look really good. The photos were always very good. That’s why I always say that it’s a real art.

  1. Hi, I stumbled across your blog, and I must say I’m quite impressed with your work. I noted Kites for freedom, and my colleagues and I participated in the project. We had the kids who were taught during the workshops teach other kids to build kites on the 28th of July and intend to have a group if them fly kites at the Kenya Kite Festival set for the 12th of August.

    I would like to post your story covering Miguel’s project on our event page on face book. It was a brilliant idea and we’d like to keep it running, and this story will create the necessary awareness.

  2. Hello,
    really impressed with your work, I am an artist teacher in the uk. I work at a catholic school in south England called Oaklands. We have a link school in Korogocho (St Johns) I am in the process of creating collaborative art projects with the school in Korogocho and while researching for a slightly different reason I came across your beautiful kite project, i was wondering if there was a way that we could take part by linking the project between my school in England and the school in Korogocho. We already have a kite making project as part of our design technology curriculum. The school we are linked with in Kenya is a primary school but i am sure we can help them with materials via fund raising etc.
    Then at some point both sides of the link could be flying there kites at the same time……….we also have feeder schools that we could encourage to take part here in England therefore increasing the numbers this project would reach.

    I have been teaching art for around 15 years now in Schools in London and South England, working with children and teenagers from reception age to adulthood. I have been lucky enough to work on projects for the Arts Council, Heritage Lottery Fund, the BBC, The National Museum of the Royal Navy, Portsmouth City Museum and Records Office and an african link project which was exhibited the British Museum. Most of the projects I have worked have been within the deprived areas of Hampshire.

    I am currently working on a Graffiti project with my year 9 classes. I wanted to show my students the graffiti in Korogocho, so as to help solidify our link which is how i ended up on your site.

    I would truly love to hear from you.
