About
This exhibition by Samuel Derbyshire in collaboration with the Pit Rivers Museum, Oxford, showcases a selection of historical photographs taken in Turkana at various different times throughout the last century. Prints of these historical photographs were recently brought back to southern Turkana as part of a visual repatriation project, where they were used in interviews and group discussion sessions to explore the recent history of the region at various different locations.

The exhibition also encompasses photographs taken during this recent project, showing the historical photographs being discussed by the friends and relatives of the people they contain.
