Bapumle Mjo


A young, independent South African artist from Port Elizabeth. Her grandfather, who was also a photographer, was her inspiration when she first encountered art during her early school years. Like Mjo, being an artist is a calling that comes from within. She joined a women’s photography workshop at that point and continued to deepen her understanding of photography.

About Project

Mjo’s personal project capture items she considers to be societal problems.  Around the world, there is still a problem with poverty. The highest crime rate is also a biggest issue facing the entire planet. This is when I began using my vision to record what poverty meant to me p and as an artist to communicate tales. My main goal is to use my vision to be the voice of all ignored histories, difficulties, and stories.
