About the book
In just over a decade, Boniface Mwangi has risen from poverty to prominence in Kenya. He is renowned for his powerful photographs and his courageous protests calling for social justice. However, little is known about the man himself.
UnBounded is a collection of engaging personal stories that takes us through some of the people, places and events that have shaped Boniface, easily one of Kenya’s best known photographers and activists. It is a portrait of the child, the man and some of the human, harrowing and even humorous episodes that he has witnessed and photographed.
This book tells of the two remarkable women – his mother and grandmother – who influenced his character and inspired his drive to raise awareness about poverty, inequality and corruption.
His work as a photo-activist is grounded in social engagement, collective action and the need for justice. This is the story of a man full of determination and warmth, a man who lives his life to make a difference.
Your photography is absolutely stunning and tells an important and powerful story for the world to hear
It is the youthful rebels, reformers and revolutionaries that must overthrow the global status quo. Boniface Mwangi’s story is within this trajectory and is relevant to Kenya, East Africa, and indeed, the world. I believe his patriotic story has just begun.
A luta Continua! Vitoria é certa!

I was struck by your story. As long as we hold firm to our principles and back our beliefs with courage and resolve, then I am confident hope will overcome fear, and freedom will continue to triumph over tyranny – because that’s what forever stirs in the human heart.
