Until recently, I was a Visual Arts lecturer at Nelson Mandela University, received my Masters in Visual Arts and am currently embarking on a Doctorate.

 

My photographs have crystallised under Chris Giglio at ICP, New York. In 2022 I will bring the extraordinary opportunity to learn back home to Africa with the advent of the Photography Institute of Contemporary Africa Teaching together with nine other selected lecturers. This will be a non-profit organisation, teaching online.

 

I am a mature documentary photographer. I refer to W Eugene Smith’s quote “…and each time I pressed the shutter release it was a shouted condemnation hurled with the hope that the picture might survive through the years, with the hope that they might echo through the minds of men in the future – causing them caution and remembrance and realization.”

My lens expresses a love of life and celebrates the individual. It seeks to consciously complicate stereotypes. And, at once, questions the status quo.

I am a strong advocate for equal rights and have always been an activist for social justice, the rights of the vulnerable and citizen empowerment in South Africa.
