The New B&W Photography: Theodore Afrika

Theodore Afrika


The New B&W Photography opens on Thursday evening presented by us, This Is Film and Orms. Next up on the the list of participating photographers to introduce is Theodore Afrika.


Theodore Afrika was born and raised in Bonteheuwel, one of the most prominent gang-infested areas in Cape Town. He began taking photos of beautiful views or landscapes on his phone which marked the beginning of his love for photography. He started shooting with a camera while studying art and design at the College of Cape Town and has been hooked ever since.


Theodore sees his photographs as a flame of expression that cannot be snuffed out: blatant and honest. His hopes are that his images evoke emotions, even those you’d rather not feel. This was his first time shooting film.
