Slum sanctuaries: For six weeks in 2005, photojournalist Jonas Bendiksen lived in a tiny sweltering room in Kibera, the largest slum in Nairobi, Kenya. "I got interested to break some of my own stereotypes of these places," he says. "What I really wanted to focus on was not the extremities, the worst poverty, or the worst slums, but on how people manage to construct daily lives in the midst of such challenges." In Kibera, he visited churches assembled from the same makeshift material as many of the homes: tin plates and mud. Above, Sunday morning worship brings together the community.
