Ya’eesh Collins, a UCT undergrad student and avid photographer (Co-Founder of this very website), recently photographed and curated his own ongoing series of portraits of some of the most interesting and most-beautiful faces in the 021. (in this case…those that made it to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week part 2).
When asked about the inspiration behind getting into peoples faces, like LITERALLY INVADING THEIR PERSONAL SPACE TO GET THE SHOT, Ya’eesh had this to say,
” For the last 3 years, I struggled with who I was and who I was becoming. I felt I truly caught small glimpses of the real me through the eyes of the people I was photographing and selfishly, I guess I decided that’s what I wanted to do for a while.”
Ya’eesh’s series will exclusively be available right here, so keep coming back for more updates!
