Interested in politics of identity, home and belonging, I am Zambia-born photographer, curator, archivist, designer & writer. In 2018, I founded Everyday Lusaka, an art platform that works to shift towards a more considered visual representation of Zambia.
My photographic and written work produced in and about Zambia has consistently focused on shifting the lens and showcasing the overlooked and relatable everyday moments of the past and present. Under Everyday Lusaka, I initiated a project called Zambia Belonging – a crowd-sourced counter archive of photographs from Zambia'a past. It started in 2018 when I encountered 300 odd forgotten photographs from one of Lusaka's oldest photo studios.
I see photography as the best way to deconstruct a constructed reality, asking poignant questions about who we are, where we come from, and where we go next. Working in this way allows me to further understand my identity and place in the world, and is what I aim to facilitate for others too.
Interested in themes and politics of identity, home and belonging, I am a Zambia-born photographer with origins in India and Myanmar. Upon completing my undergraduate in Photography in 2017, I co-founded Everyday Lusaka – an online platform and stationary business that shares photographs of Lusaka to positively counter stereotypes of Africa.
During my Honours in Curatorship at the University of Cape Town in 2019, I created an archive called The Studio Stool which houses a collection of found and submitted photographs made in Zambia that would not usually be recognised in the state archives.
