NG’ENDO MUKII / KENYA: TRAVELOGUE, 2012-2015 & YELLOW FEVER, 2012 I am interested in the concept of skin and race, in the ideas and theories written into our flesh. In Yellow Fever, I explore the colonization of the African female body under the Western gaze and its effect on our self-image. In The Travelogues, I visualize the land and body as one, combining panoramic photos with details of the female body. Yellow Fever, 2012 I create a visual diary reclaiming the land and body through my travels, and reflecting on colonial travelogues written by explorers traversing Africa.
