Celebrating East African Writing!
“After reading three stories [Part One, Two, Three] from the Southern Africa celebration, I wanted to do portrait of a woman, because I like portraits. But, I wanted one of a black woman, whose nationality you would not be able to tell. Is she South African, is she Zimbabwean or is she Namibian? I wanted any person to look at this picture and see, or have it be a small reflection of themselves. I wanted a raw face.” Lu-Rosa Latola
