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 FALL WITHIN THE GENRE OF AFROFUTURISM, WHILE HIGHLIGHTING THREE KEY PRINCIPLES BEING CULTUREFICTION AND IDENTITYTHROUGH STORYTELLING AND SOCIAL INCLUSION IT CREATES A POWERFUL PLATFORM TO CONVEY IMPORTANT MESSAGES ON TOPICS SUCH AS EQUALITY, INCLUSION, GENDER ABUSE, IVORY POACHING, FGM, ALBINISM, DWARFISM, MINORITY GROUPS AND CARE FOR THE ELDERLY.
