Gladys Katana, Lamu, , 2020

Gladys’ octopus hat is made from seaweed, coral, drift wood and plastic found on the beach.

28 Hats For Lamu is A Photographic series whose sales go to a Kenyan Association. All proceeds from print sales from 28 HATS FOR LAMU will be donated to the New Leaf drugs rehabilitation centre in Kenya.

28 HATS FOR LAMU celebrates the transformative power of creativity – how the ordinary becomes extraordinary as the imagination works its magic. The photographs in this exhibition were made on the sub-equatorial island of Lamu in Kenya, in February 2020, by South-African photographer Kristin-Lee Moolman and French-British stylist Louise Ford, who spent much of her childhood between Zimbabwe and Kenya. The portraits document the competitors in this year’s Shela Hat Contest, a biannual event in which Lamunians foster environmental empathy. Entrants create hats from material that would otherwise be thrown away, in a celebration of recycling and repurposing.

The results are playful, joyous and often reflect the Lamunian experience. All exhibit a sensitivity towards the beauty of the Lamu environment, its ecosystem and the interrelationship of humans and the natural world.

Kristin-Lee Moolman says: ‘This project is about optimism, empowerment and paying homage to the creative vision of the artists of Lamu.’ Louise Ford adds: ‘Community and environment are deeply important to me. I believe this project embodies the two’.

Kristin-Lee Moolman

Kristin-Lee Moolman is a South African photographer and filmmaker. Growing up during the transition between Apartheid and the new South Africa she is profoundly influenced by the positive narratives she choses to pursue in her images. Her work explores the social and political realities of Africa by deconstructing traditional representations of masculinity and feminity, promoting powerful new identities as counter-narratives to curren sterotyoes, idealized imagery.

Kristin-Lee Moolman was most recently awarded the 2020 Rudin Prize for Photography by the Norton Museum of Art.
