Tamary Kudita

Tamary Kudita was born in Zimbabwe while her ancestry can be traced back to the Orange Free State, historical Boer state in Southern Africa. She studied fine art at the University of Cape Town and subsequently established herself in fine art photography. She maintains an active studio practice and has exhibited in Zimbabwe and outside the country. Her work attempts to convey a truthful narrative and demonstrate how she engages with issues of invisibility, re-contextualisation, appropriation, and subversion to preconceived ideas of Black personhood. Through portraiture, she merges her contemporary aesthetic with a historical aesthetic as a way of showing how the old informs the new. @africatotheworldzw
