[quote]Being the only young white female Kenyan photojournalist in the world…my view of the stories I photograph are unique, a bridge of understanding between worlds because I sit between them….My intention with this work is to remind about the different lives of women – often in stark contrast in one moment – and to share the intimate access I’m afforded into the lives of those I’ve momentarily entered and connected with.[/quote]

I’m Holly - born and raised in the rural British Counties, my mother began life on a sugar farm in Zululand. After reading Anthropology at university in London, working for a political activist filmmaker in India, and doing a short stint under the bright lights of Bollywood – I decided it was time to return to the motherland. To earn a crust in the name of wanderlust, I finished up a post grad in media and hotfooted around South Africa as a freelance travel journalist.
