“African Transformation started as an observation of traditional healers during their rituals and meditations. While slipping into trance-like states, each face had a unique story to tell at the moment of spiritual transformation, from absolute surrender to total elation and acceptance. The more time I spent on the project, the more I realised that my observations exceeded the realm of tribal ceremonies and gave me insights into the nature of people.
What started off as a mere observation has now turned into a profound personal experience, as capturing the transformation in others has led me to
my own personal sense of transformation as an artist.The African continent is home to immense diversity. From first world cities and economies to third world chaos and poverty. From extreme hardship and religious cleansing to big skies and open savannahs. All of this etched into the faces of its people.
With this project I wanted to capture the beauty in all it’s shape and forms of Africa’s people.In essence, this series is about the Truth of Africa.
It’s a continent filled with such Soul.This series is my documentation, celebration and honouring exactly that.”
