Hello! I’m Roopa Gogineni, a photojournalist based in Nairobi, Kenya. Thrilled to instagram this week for@burndiary, on assignment in Mogadishu making a photo and video portrait of the city and the people who call it home. I’ve been working in Somalia since 2011 when al Shabaab still controlled parts of the capital city. Nearly two and half years later, my story this week is not about pirates, warlords or terrorists but about everyday lives in one of my favorite places. First photo, 4:30am in Nairobi, photographer @trevorsnapp locks up before the flight. It’s just two hours long but takes you far, far away. Photo by @rgogineni.
