The power of photography is something that cannot be denied. Controversial, shocking, mind-blowing, eye-opening, photography can take on many forms. At NYIP, we're always looking for new ways that photography can help the world.
Last week, we were proud to announce a partnership with a group called Keeping the Smile who are using photography to heal.
Keeping the Smile is a project based in Nairobi, Kenya. Their work, to teach photography to children battling cancer at Kenyatta National Hospital as a part of their ongoing treatment. In their first year, they've already worked with 36 children, and they are starting to get more funding from outside sources as we speak.
The project was started and is being run by a man named Boniface Muthoni. We had the pleasure of meeting with Boniface in our offices here in Manhattan a couple of weeks ago, when we signed up for our Complete Course in Professional Photography.
Boniface has promised to keep us up to date on his progress and the growth of his project. We hope to share some of their stories with you here.
