Kisumu Bus Station

Adhi Kisuma

 

Kisumu Bus Station in Western Kenya, is more than a transport hub.  It is a place of trade where East meets West. A British Colonial past has left behind the English language and Christian religion, whilst Kenya now imports its largest percentage of goods from China in the present.  This work explores the trade influences past and present, and contrast global branding with the local vernaculars. Adhi Kisuma means  I am going to trade.
