BIO

 

I'M A SELF-TAUGHT COMMERCIAL ARTIST & PHOTOGRAPHER BORN AND BASED IN NAIROBI, KENYA WITH A BACHELORS DEGREE IN ARCHITECTURE. 

MY STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY IS WHAT I CALL AFROFICTIONISM,  WHICH IS AN INDEPENDENT NARRATIVE STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY WHICH HIGHLIGHTS THREE KEY PRINCIPLES BEING CULTURE, FICTION AND IDENTITY THROUGH STORYTELLING THAT BORDERS BETWEEN REALITY AND FANTASY. AT THE SAME TIME IT CREATES A POWERFUL PLATFORM TO CONVEY IMPORTANT MESSAGES ON TOPICS LIKE GENDER ABUSE, IVORY POACHING, FGM, ALBINISM, DWARFISM, MINORITY GROUPS AND CARE FOR THE ELDERLY.
