More female talents are beginning to dominate the creative scene and we are totally here for it. South African female photographer, Kitso Kgori was Born in Pretoria and raised in Mafikeng North West by a single mother. Growing up in a single-parent household and seeing the strength of her mother has greatly influenced her photography, as she uses her passion for capturing photos in celebrating women of colour.
Here's what she had to say about her love for photography.
Photography is a time machine, capturing precious slices of time that can be relived again and again in my mind and with others.
While I studied Architectural Technology in Cape Town for 5 years, I found my true passion for photography through architectural elements— in my last year of that study. My transition was taken seriously by mother who is my number one cheerleader. She is truly supportive of my career change, not that it came to her as a surprise because I work in front of the camera often as a model.
