Filippo Romano – Residents Welfare
Residents Welfare is a journey through the gated communities of Nairobi and the booming “real estate” that has since recently gained a foothold in Kenya’s capital city. Photographed and compiled by city and architecture photographer Filippo Romano, the publication is filled with images of gated communities with grey concrete walls and electrified barbed wire, of cookie-cutter villas and lush, manicured gardens, as well as the prolific residential construction developments marketed to the city’s wealthier citizens. This is the first publication of a long-term project on Nairobi which began in 2011.
