Mark Knopfler of Dire Straights - Kenya famine photoshop negative sandwich

Designed to bring light to social and humanitarian issues by combining images of celebrities and fashion with images of conflict, crisis and disaster, this "negative sandwich" features Mark Knopfler (of Dire Straights and now commonly regarded as one of the greatest guitar players of all time) fused with an image of a dried and cracked mud hut in the Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya. Kenya has been suffering from a severe famine for a number of years due primarily to drought. Kenya is also home to refugees from unstable areas around the region, many of whom end up in camps and not only suffer from the drought but put strain on the already limited resources. More about the famine in Kenya here.
