I came across Pawel Kadysz's artistic photography work when I was going through a creative block. I have been on Instagram since 2013 and I like to think of myself as a connoisseur to photography series and projects as I have seen so many of them. However, I have never done a project myself so I took to the internet for some inspiration. I found Pawel Kadysz's Darth Vader series on www.tookapic.com. This app and website are for photographer who like to challenge themselves daily. It is different from Instagram in that this app is like old Instagram which used to be about photography and creativity.
I came across Arinze Stanley Egbe, by chance, on twitter after someone had retweeted a picture with much praise of the artist. At first, it looked like a photograph but I soon realised that it was actually a drawing. I had to find out more.
Today's feature is reality TV star, Rupert Frere. I know what you are thinking. Reality star? No, not that kind of reality star. Rupert was a contenstant on Sky TV's Master of Photography 2016. Within a few episodes of watching the show, it became obvious that Rupert was going to be a favourite, not just for his skill in photography, but for his friendly and humble demeanour. Rupert went on to become a runner-up so we decided to catch up with him to see what he's been up to.
Today's feature is Tanya Mushayi, a designer from Zimbabwe. I came across Tanya when she followed me on Instagram. I had a look at her feed and was impressed at how this young lady was showcasing her African label, with its vibrant colours and hip hop style. Her photo shoots also highlight a cool side of Africa whilst still embracing typical Africa. I've asked Tanya to tell us about herself below.
