THEMBA MOKASE

Born in Pretoria in a township called Mamelodi and growing up with so many insecurities, derived from being different, I developed a stutter making it difficult to speak or express myself verbally.  These impediments have become assets as they have led to my developing a keen visual sense as a child.My voice was realised through photography – I had, and have a lot to say! I believe images are more than what meets the eye. I look at photography as the art of evoking emotion that connects people through visual creation.
