Lesego Moeketsi


Lesego Moeketsi was born in 16 June 1999 in Kagiso West of Johannesburg, South Africa and still currently based there.

Moeketsi’s interest in photography sparked during a visit to a friend and then was introduced to a fashion photographer Katlego Mathipa’s body of work on African Women. She started photography at the age of 18, where she used to visualize stories using her old Samsung S4 phone. In 2018, she started her first year at City Varsity School of Film and Drama. She is currently studying the Photojournalism and Documentary Photography Program at The Market Photo Workshop in Newtown.

Moeketsi's passion is human interest stories. She aims to use the medium of photography to tell the stories of ordinary people, in their own language, through the medium of photography.
