Beauty Papers x UNHCR – Kakuma Football Club by Bibi Borthwick

Honourable Mention – Editorial

For this project, Bibi Borthwick travelled to Kenya at the invitation of the Kenyan Embassy and with the support of UNHCR. These images were taken at the Kakuma Refugee camp, where Borthwick photographed the Kakuma United football team, which is composed of players from seven different nationalities, drawn from the camp.

The camp houses 18,000 displaced refugees and is the largest refugee camp in Kenya. The resulting story was featured in the summer edition of the magazine Beauty Papers, which was themed Revolution.
