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.
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.
