Known as @Jay_Teja on Instagram, John Baloyi has quickly and consistently become one of the best portraiture and street style photographers in Johannesburg right now. He captures his subjects in their most confident, beautiful and sometimes vulnerable states; his most prominent muse, however, is his equally creative wife, Itumeleng Baloyi or @Solarisutu as she is popularly known on Instagram -power duo much?
Baloyi shoots on film and digital. He has an eye for colour and composition, especially within urban city spaces like Braamfontein and Moboneng. One can’t help but go through his repertoire of work and get excited to see what future projects may look like. It can only get better from here.
We love the work he has curated this far and want to share our 10 favourites from Instagram. (including the ones above)
