Notes

Tatenda Chiodora is a Zimbabwe-born commercial, fine art, and fashion photographer, who is based in South Africa. Chiodora studied photography at the Tshwane University of Technology and graduated with a BTech in 2015. He has a deep love for black and white photography and utilises light in all his work to create tonally rich and striking images. Chiodora’s work is inspired by the interesting people he meets in his daily life. He uses his unconventional eye as a lens to create striking, contemporary portraits in both colour and black and white. His photographs celebrate and elevate the every day through a contemporary African narrative.
