'From Northern Kenya they are here, Western Kenya they are here, Nyanza they are here, even from Central Kenya they are here. They are searching this job, this is the job now.' This body of work focuses on the tea pluckers of the Nandi Hills region in Kenya and explores Kenya's reliance on the tea industry, land ownership issues and everyday life. In the UK more than half of our tea comes from Kenya and a large percentage of that tea is handpicked. I am interested in considering how removed we have become from the way our food is grown and the labour that produces it. A short film also accompanies this work.
