Activist - Boniface Mwangi

Boniface Mwangi is an award-winning Kenyan photojournalist who has achieved international recognition for his stunning images, as well as his unrelenting socio-political activism. Boniface is widely praised for his emotive images of the post-election violence that hit Kenya during 2007 - 2008.

The violence inspired Boniface to found Picha Mtaani, a youth-led peace initiative that primarily seeks to create space for young people to come together and “heal the nation” by acting as agents of reconciliation within their respective communities. Boniface has been recognised as a Magnum Photography Fellow, Acumen Fund East Africa Fellow, TED Fellow, and twice as the CNN Multichoice Africa Photojournalist of the Year, among other awards. He currently runs Pawa 254, a collaborative hub for creatives in Kenya.
