GLUED FOR LIFE – An extraordinary Love story from the streets

Posted on Posted in Just Lovely

Love in its simplest form is pure and unconditional. It leaks and reigns in the least encouraging of environments. For this Valentines day, we decided to do something different. We wanted to shoot something that was out of the ordinary… and so we started looking..

BOOOM!… A story of two love birds whose desire to be together defies all odds. Hand in hand they stroll in the streets of Nairobi hoping to bump into a better future…their resolve to hold on to love is inspiring, not even the pangs of poverty or uncertain future deter their zeal to do life together.

We first met Sammy who in the streets is famously known as Blackie, lying on the grass at Central Park – Nairobi. He was with his friends but seemed disinterested with their little ‘puff and pass’ ritual as they day dreamed their afternoon away. His face told of a discomfort and on inquiry, Blackie confirmed that a tooth was slowly writhing life out of him. It was a usual ice breaking conversation until we asked if he had ever fallen in love. His eyes lit up and he gave a hearty smile exposing his nicotine filled dental formula. The question almost seemed therapeutic as he in heavy sheng lingual started describing his girlfriend. It was almost unbelievable that love would conform to such settings, a complete slap on the many things we have forcefully evolved love to.best wedding photographerFirst phone photo when we met the couple…

 

Virginia is a soft spoken shy girl with a humble smile and witty conversation. She has been in the streets for the last two years on and off. She met Blackie on the streets of Nairobi where they both lived as what we famously refer to as ‘chokoras’. A few bumps into each other at Central Park sparked a friendship that was cemented when they later met in Majengo slums.

Under the inspiration of love in its simplest form, Muchiri frames celebrated Valentines with these amazing souls and came out with great testimonies. Indeed, beneath all the dirt, tattered clothes and slurred speeches there lies beautiful individuals who would thrive like the rest of us if we offered them the opportunities. Love doesn’t discriminate, here is proof.

Their dreams and ambitions however remain intact, Virginia wishes to pursue a career in catering, a dream that Blackie cheers on as he says he would love to have a top chef prepare his meals. He on the other hand walks everywhere with a copy of his driving license hoping that one day heaven might send an angel his way and grant him a driver’s job.

We are inspired to be the change we want to see in our little ways and our little spaces. The Valentine’s shoot was a small gesture that not only transformed their physical appearance but their outlook in life. At the end of it all, everyone involved in the experience took life lessons on unconditional love to heart.

Love was celebrated in its simplest of forms but all this wouldn’t have been possible without the overwhelming support of friends who went out of their way to make it happen…
