“The project I presented at the #colabnownow were four random images that celebrates the contemporary urban culture, I like vibrant colors, architectural histories and capturing people’s attitudes when I shoot portraits. Three of the images I exhibited were created and Maputo and one from Dar es Salaam. All images are accompanied by poems from a Ghanaian creative Hakeem Adam and UK/ Zimbabwean poet Tanyaradzwa Chitunhu.”
Work & Process
My interpretation to the images
One image can tell more than one story, It just depends from what perspective you are looking the image at, so sometimes it’s just a beautiful view or moment that I find worth sharing with the world or sometimes we go complex coming up with conceptual pieces. For the pieces I shared at #colabnownow all photographs are just to share the beauty found in everyday life of the modern day Africa yet anyone can come up with a different thought.
