During the Covid-19/Coronavirus Lock-down I did a photography project – photographing Isaya Evans the casting director and an Actor on the New normal, where the tissues /toilet papers became more useful and the lemons were scarce, hiking the prices at the iGabantu Studios, Formerly Hillcrest Academy, 209 State House Rd, Nairobi. Lack of routine can be challenging at these times. There will be an extended period of adjustment to this new normal and uncertain world pandemic. Everyday activities have assumed a greater significance and I have set myself the challenge to take an interesting and different photograph each day to try and show this. The challenge is to consider what to photograph and when and keep the project style consistent. I want to capture what under normal circumstances would be a trivial subject and elevate it to this new significance.
Model– Isaya Evans ~In reality, being a creative is rough, tough, uncertain and full of challenges… sometimes you want to give up. But, not exactly for a boy whose first ever role was as a DOOR. Seeing the other kids sing, dance happily past me (as I stood as a door in a kindergarten role play), created a spark in me, “I didn’t have to be the shy boy anymore!”. I knew I had to be out there… never to be chained on one spot again! Fast forward to campus. Amidst chasing after my degree in a different field, my love for arts still stood out, while lying to myself acting was just but a hobby, it finally stole (my limelight and my heart). After graduation, I got a job which I quit barely a week after ; I wasn’t going to be a door again in this story of life…
SOLACE PART II
Day in day out, things happen occasionally and some planned or others done randomly. Sometimes they say you fail to plan you are planning to fail, but in real life—ain`t that always serious as it is stated. Back to our photography journey especially concerning the solace concept. The main theme/concept or the planned shoot concept was supposed to highlight or be the part of the cancer campaign come the month of October ,but again as I started shooting and the kind of light setup I had already arranged, I thought for a second time why don’t I try and enhance the low lighting something which always trickles my mind since the photos leaves emotional mood which you can’t run away from , more than the slit lighting also trying to create some illusion especially on the two high contrast black and white images showing the body parts, since they say human body itself is an art. Thank LORD the model skin tones were dark, lets us for once appreciate our color. Black is beauty, no debate about that, and in case you want to debate with me, I will be glad to hear from you the other side of the story. I guess it’s a game of probability, you either have head or tail, my contacts are all-over, no need to ask for one. She was to cooperative considering that I hadn’t briefed her on what were shooting. Yes, it is good to plan and share the ideas with your team but again things/stuff do happen and you are left in for a rude shock, meaning we should be really flexible for unseen things. Actually sometimes not always the random stuff do force someone to the comfort cocoon and try new things-imagine if the students knew how the exam will be. There won’t be a need of studying hard or smart as it is argued.
