2008 +throughMylens - Photography Journey

As a Visual Communication Designer, I major in Copy writing, Photography, Web, Print and Video, in general it’s about content creation. I’m a strong advocate of authentic content production and my inspiration comes from many sources.

In my photography journey dubbed +throughMyLens I seek to document the positive side of life especially challenging the usual narrative of Africa being a continent of poverty, diseases, crime etc. whereby encouraging the next generation of Africans to proactively build a sustainable Africa by celebrating the good side and most of all telling our stories and not leaving it to predetermined scripts.

I want to show the other side part of the coin in the story of Africa which wouldn’t make it to the front page of any newspaper because it isn’t termed as news as per their script. I’m a self taught person and I started photography back in 2008 and currently still learning how best to sharpen my skills and later monetizing the skills for quality and affordable prices by training others.
