Body of Work: Disappearing Africa
We are witnessing the death of originality, the death of authenticity and the cheapening of information and communication. We are witnessing the slow erosion of our own true African selves and what held for millennia is slowly passing away in the face of modernization, and with the least amount of resistance.
This creative concept was birthed during a photo-shoot of the ethnographic collection of African masks at the Cultural Heritage Centre in Arusha, Tanzania, and is presented to showcase conceptually, the cultural erosion that we are witnessing among the so-called millennials and within the public discourse.
This series is an artistic depiction of actual masks, interpreted through the lens of Disappearing Africa.
Body fruit is a celebration of all the shapes that a woman’s body represents. Women’s bodies are fresh, tangy, bitter, juicy, sweet, sour, hard, soft and unpredictable, and much like fruit, they change with the seasons and contain the seeds of life.
