I spent several days on trips to Kibera, a sprawling slum of Nairobi. People there aren’t always eager to have their pictures taken, but these portrait subjects all agreed. I met them in the company of NGO workers who advocate for clean water.

    Yes, I don’t think it’s actual dry cleaning. I think it’s more likely cleaning and drying.
