Kenya Bound

Emma Hall is a photojournalist from Enterprise, Oregon, and a volunteer with Frontline Wellness United. She arrived in Kenya Jan. 29 to cover humanitarian concerns (primarily focused on the Kenyan government’s mistreatment of activists and protesters). 

This is a short introduction to her work (and some of her motivations for doing it). 

Emma got her first real taste for photojournalist in September of 2016, when she spent three weeks photographing in the three resistance camps at the Dakota Access Pipeline protests in North Dakota. She's done some travel-related photography in the United Kingdom, Norway and Iceland, but Kenya will be her first experience in a society that's vastly different than Western cultures (and one that's in upheaval from political unrest, widespread dissent against government corruption and police violence—including frequent extrajudicial killings—against the populace).
