One for the books

This one will go down in history, I actually think it’s timeless which is why I’m posting it exactly a year later. This photoshoot by Giancarlo Laguerta has been one of my favorites

I’ve always been a fan of retro, the wide blazers and pleated skirts,and this hairdo came just at the right time completed if not made the whole look.

I should get this stuff published it deserves more than just my galary and a couple of inspiration pages.

Bleeding in The Sun series

Photographer: Giancarlo Laguerta

Stylist: Eva Maria Fernada Laguerta

Models: Me and Leloba Jefferis

This was a very sharp and intense photoshoot, the people involved in making this project come alive are commendable for their coordination and hard work ,the editorial made its way into kingkong magazine which is also available online which is pretty exciting for me I’ve always wanted one of those. At this rate i can eventually be on Vogue or some high profile glossy print magazine,i mean a girl can dream.

Me and the Melanin Boys

So in the meantime while working on getting a good representative agency for my modeling i am working with several models and photographers from all over the country and beyond to expand and familiarize myself with most concepts.

Beginning of this year i collaborated with South Africa based twin model and photographer Wes and Simba Raws alongside a talented male model Phenyo and Botswana based photographer Garry to capture vintage images for the month of love , the results were pretty amazing and I would definitely work with them again in the future.

Healthy body and mind,that’s how you stay alive

Okay i have been gone from this site for quite a while, creative block and all but just the other day i was going through my books ,trying to look for something to revisit ,and i found about four of my favorite books,dusted them off and just absorbed their beautiful content. A read mind is a fed mind after this i hope you pick up a book and read.

It’s no secret that reading stimulates the mind, it makes the impossible seem possible,if you are reading the right books. Get as many penguin classics for a rich literature culture and don’t forget self development books,you can never stop learning. And if you are an art lover like me get many Art books too,Art feeds the soul,it is inspiring.

Here is a few of my reads and i am a terrible person for letting my favorite art book get ruined,but guess what Art in ruins is still Art.g

African wilderness 

Is my title misleading then ,chuckles. A lot of things will be perceived typically African so here i was focusing on my dark skin,locks hair ,printed top and the riverside,oh the sunset was so breathtaking.

My friend joined me for this shoot with her beautiful short hair she complimented the whole image.

Portraits by Lawrence Vator

I enjoy working with several upcoming artists with a lot of potential and those that are already established and i am always marveled at how each of them can tell a different story on the same object. The diversity is what is breath taking ,the possibilities are endless.

I really enjoy being infront of the camera as much as i love capturing beautiful images of my friends from my phone from time to time, it gives me a rush i can express myself in so many ways mere images can communicate a lot if the eye is willing to see the story.
