@boundless.world commissioned me to shoot a series of images of their ongoing project Siyazakhela. The project trains coaches in local communities to mentor and teach proximity based entrepreneurs how to run a successful business. The App allows fellows to continue learning outside of coaching sessions, giving them access to lessons and tutorials. . I took this series of photograph in Sindisiwe’s house where her coach was hosting a group session. All bundled together in her small lounge, I heard stories of excitement and gratefulness, of how an app and community of coaches were changing local businesses for better. Sindisiwe dreams of starting a repair and installation business that focuses of laptops and general electronics. “ I haven’t started my business yet, I need to learn first”. #everydayeducation #siyazakhela Africa EyeEm Ready   South Africa Township Township Life Portraiture

I met Cyriaque whilst in Rwanda. With a storm brewing and pregnant with precipitation, the clouds graced Rwandan soil with rain . Whilst fumbling in my backpack for my coat, Cyriaque saw me getting wet and invited me into the courtyard of a house on the roadside. His grey felt hat caught my attention as the rain welled up and dripped from the brim. Once I was invited inside to shelter a single window cast a beautiful soft light on any shape or form it touched. Cyriaque and his grey hat was once such form. The Portraitist - 2017 EyeEm Awards

The Portraitist - 2017 EyeEm Awards After an incredible 3 days in the DRC seeing the gorillas and summiting the Nyiracongo volcano, I returned to Rwanda and embarked on a self-guided 4-day hike along the banks of Lake Kivu with maps of the region from Rwandan-adventures (link in bio). Being a twin, I often find it difficult to be alone. I've always had someone to turn to, who understands me better than anyone else, so the thought of traveling alone was a daunting one. On Rwanda's dirt roads and through meeting villagers as I passed through, I discovered that you're only as alone as you want to be. And this was no more poignant than when I met Innocent on the third day. We walked together for 4 hours, Innocent teaching me some Kenya-Rwanda Swahili and speaking about football. One of my pet peeves about the language barrier was that I couldn't get small details about the people I would photograph. Innocent helped with this and as I result I was able to record the details of this image: Above, Dionese stands with bundles of grass on her head used as an ingredient in making banana juice.

For the past 4/5 Sunday sunrises, I've woken up at the crack of dawn to take a plunge in the Brookeside Rock pool with friends. There are a group of older ladies who gather in their towelled robes and drink 'Woffee', a flask full of coffee with whiskey to warm you up after the freezing dip. Pictured, Maya sits on the lap of her guardian Dawn, as her mum swims.
