Motown In Nairobi 2018

Sometimes I carry my camera to events and beat photos.

Events like Motown In Nairobi.

You see, I come from a side of Kenya where photos aren’t ‘taken’. That concept doesn’t exist where I come from.

Where I come from, we “goyo picha“. We chwado images. We beat photos.

For this particular one, as soon as I got home and started transferring the photos from my camera’s memory card, a thought hit me.

So I decided to give the photos I’d beaten a different visual style. A surreal, back-in-time kind of style. You know, something a little more… Motown.

I liked it. I liked it a lot.

And yes, Motown In Nairobi was pretty damn awesome.


Yes, you can book yourself a moment. Or for a loved one. Or for you and a loved one. Be it personal portrait, friendship portrait, couple/family portrait; or an event you have coming up – wedding, music, private family function… You get the idea. As long as there are stories to tell, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a storyteller as good.

It’s simple: Just drop me a line on stillsbymarcus@gmail.com, and we’ll chat.
