David Kwaw Mensah
David Kwaw Mensah is a photographer originally from Ghana, based in the UK, part of the diverse voices of the African London Diaspora. Fascinated by the magic of cinema and the creation of poetry, he also believed in the power of images. Treating images as poems David has a focus on portraits and event photography. In his work, he uses lights to express feelings and connections of and toward the subjects. In Bridged Narratives exhibition, David explores London’s events with subjects from the African Diaspora and poetic titles.
Photographer Logor Oluwamuyiwa was born in Lagos in July 1990. Logor’s interest is to engage both eye and equipment to observe the unique human carnival in Lagos and the world around him by capturing people, things and narratives that are often overlooked, ignored or taken for granted. Thus, he is interested in ephemerality and the banal in connection to the things of the “real” that leads to the creation of stories were the audience or viewers can draw personal references.
Logor explores aspects of visual and digital archiving by showing and exposing the idiosyncrasies and aesthetics of the city in its true character and reflection. He is an advocate for positive and rich storytelling via the digital media as a tool for reorientation and pathways to new dialogue and knowledge acquisition.
Rachid Tagoulla is a professional photographer from Agadir, Morocco. Part of the Photography Club in Agadir, he has participated in, curated, and organized many exhibitions. Very much involved as an educator and mentor, he has also facilitated photography workshops. His work has been exhibited in Morocco, France, and Germany. Furthermore, the young multi-talented photographer has received awards from many organizations across the globe including Morocco, the UK, and Kuwait.
In “Bodies of Nature” Rachid depicts the immensity of the Sahara desert, one of the most prominent entities of nature in Africa – most especially North Africa. The Sahara is home to the Amazigh people, some are travelling the land in caravans, others are working with the land around the oasis.
