Street Photography – Chainda Township

A few weeks ago, I had the awesome opportunity to go on a street photography visit to Chainda Companion (Township) in the Eastern part of Lusaka. Chella Tukuta, one of Zambia’s leading photographers held a masterclass in an area he knows very well. Check out his facebook page and website.

I was a little apprehensive. There were many feelings of guilt and awkwardness on my part, photographing people from a very different world to my own. I needn’t have worried. We were warmly received and people loved having their photo taken.

My word of advice to anyone wanting to try street photography is – just do it! Most people love it, and if you do so with a smile and a laugh it will make for a very enjoyable experience.
