As an ethnographer I’m a keen observer of every day life and intrigued by moments of performance, identity, urban spaces and pop culture. My work has been published and reviewed by some of the leading media such as the Mail & Guardian, Reuters, The Sunday Times and BBC, just to mention a few.

I have also lectured at University of Witwatersrand where I set up the Photography unit in Journalism department as well at University of Johannesburg, FADA where twice 2014 /2015 I was a visiting lecturer in the Faculty of Arts, Design and Architecture.
I have exhibited widely and twice at the Bamako Biennale. Some of my work is part of art collection by the Agence Francaise de Development (AFD) in France and the Wedge Gallery in Toronto, Canada.
