Hello, I'm Kwena b. 1987, from Johannesburg based in Y̶a̶n̶g̶o̶n̶. Chiang Mai.


I have been photographing since my intensive studies in technical analogue photography 14 years ago and I am seriously looking to get published. My body of work just keeps expanding and needs a book into which it can spill.


My process is such that I constantly shoot what is around me, then later compile the images to  to reveal a pattern in nature, behaviour, culture; or to narrate a fiction using real-life captures.  

I identify as a photo artist. I can do editorial, but only shoot celluloid.



Auto-manifesto

All the art is already in my thoughts

It is vindicated by my observations

Which I compose in photographs

that exist in instant-infinite tension


Apart from my photography,

I work remotely in the arts and culture sector, independently for many years before, but now in the development space. I am currently working on the institutional development of an arts fund, for which I am the former grant manager, whose beneficiaries are exclusively from Myanmar. I am open to work remotely on other such projects, as well as  get involved in Global South exchanges.
