UMOJA | open collection
The last 2,5 years our lives were put on pause. Never before did silence feel so confusing, fearful, and liberating all at the same time. In fact, in the absence of the usual herds of tourists, but with wildlife in full effect, I felt a deeper connection with Africa than ever before.
I kept revisiting the same places over and over again and as time progressed, I started to feel part of something bigger, as if space and time didn’t exist. And in that particular space of not knowing what’s ahead of us, ‘Umoja’ was born, a series of images that became my way of dealing with the uncertainty of living in between an old world that was falling apart and a new one that has not yet emerged.
The word 'Umoja' is Swahili for ’oneness’, for ‘unity’ and I sincerely hope that my work will serve in homes around the world as a daily reminder that ‘we are one’, which I believe, has been one lesson we all learned in the past few years.
The full collection is consisting of 19 limited edition artworks and 23 open edition artworks. Below you find the 'open edition' selection.
