My Photography Pledge

SIZE: 148 x 105 mm | GICLÉE PRINT ON ARCHIVAL HAHNEMULE PAPER

“I am an artist. I tell stories through mise-en-scene, my work revolves around identity: who we were, who we are and who we can become as African people.

Telling stories has always been part of me, music was the first medium I fell in love with growing up, poetry too. Later I discovered other mediums such as painting and photography and the urge to express myself became even bigger. As I started playing with the camera and taking pictures I realised the power I had in my hand, I was able to take portraits and tell stories, it was exciting as it was instant but I also realised the responsibility that goes with it, the risk of misrepresentation and misleading. My pledge to photography is dedicated to the art of photography and true representation.”
