Tatenda Chidora - Until We Safe

11 September - 03 October 2019

Tatenda Chidora b.1988, Zimbabwe

Contemporary photographer, Tatenda Chidora graduated from the Tshwane University of Technology with a BTech in Photography in 2015. His works are inspired by the traces of imagery that surrounds people everyday.


The most beautiful images are stored in our brains. My one challenge is bringing them to life and making them immortal. 

The love for photography was installed in me at an early age
through magazines and other mediums of art. The desire to create always existed within me but I never had a sense of direction in how I could execute it. Through painting with light I am able to tell my story. Everyday I seek after beauty but its not so far fetched because it surrounds me. Faces, people, culture, lines, nature and structure
inspire me. As light falls on objects, I am drawn to focus and create. This allows me not to go too far for inspiration.”

Tatenda uses monochrome photography to have a visual conversation about the striking beauty of black skin. He draws inspiration from the people and places he encounters in everyday life, capturing intoxicating portraits and breath-taking architectural shots of Johannesburg monuments. – AFROPUNK 2018
