Nontsikelelo ‘Lolo’ Veleko (b. 1977) is a South African photographer, based in France.
These two striking photographs are from Lolo’s signature Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder series depicting bold, funky fashion portraits captured on the streets of Johannesburg. Memorable and powerful, Lolo’s images pose questions around how identity is perceived, and often assumed, and at the same time of how her subjects use their clothes to construct their guises of identity.
