Astonishing images of door-to-door salesmen in Nairobi’s Mathare slum
Nomadic Sellers is a photography series by Filippo Romano which captures the day-to-day life of door-to-door salesmen in Mathare, a slum in Nairobi, Kenya. This slum is packed into a three-square-mile region and houses up to 500,000 people. In a poverty-stricken neighbourhood such as this, many ‘turn to self-made entrepreneurship in the fight for survival’. From sneakers and watermelons to medicine and lampshades, these salesmen sell from morning til night making a living to support themselves and their families.
