Amidst dumps and slums, street children and artisans search for how to survive, to reclaim and promote their own existence. This publication offers photographs taken in the markets and villages of Kenya, where initiative promoting self-sustenance have developed on the development of experience in exploiting poor and recyclable materials. The discovery of “poor art”, from children’s toys to the works of craftsmen and artist, is a powerful form of expression and can somewhat and somewhat magical art.Shoes made from discarded rubber, a knife grinder made from a bicycle wheel, an organ made from water pipes, a lamp made from plastic bottle bottoms and a clock made from old flip-flops are a few of the ingenious recycled Kenyan products covered in this fascinating volume.
