Hazel Mphande, also known as Hazey Jane, born 1989, is a self-taught photographer and artist from Pretoria. Hazel’s first encounter with a DSLR camera ignited a passion that led her to start using photography as a form of expression and later enrolling at The Market Photography Workshop to hone her skills as a photographer, completing both foundation and intermediate courses.
Though Hazel has been able to diversify and apply her skills using different techniques and styles (portraits of individuals, architecture, street photography etc…), her great passion lies in self portraiture. In her images, she captures and illustrates the various colours of her emotions using soft focus, lush and sometimes harsh textures.
Hazel’s work has been exhibited at several group shows, including: 30 Days in a CITY, SHE Clix, Photocomment Issue 49.
