“Art is a form of salvation. Art is a form of self expression. Art is a form of survival.
For me, photography is a form of reclaiming agency of the stories told from the continent. I choose my art to showcase the multidimensional lives on the continent and the various positions we take within our societies. As a young Somali-Kenyan womxn in South Africa, I seek to reclaim my narrative through photographing the inspiring people around me as they live their truths and not only change the way the world sees them but also in the way they see themselves.”
