Karabo Mooki, born in Johannesburg in 1988, is a photographer working in a range of genres including portraiture, fine art, travel, and documentary photography.
The camera has always been the empowered memory maker in his life. Pieces of life devolved through the sights of everyday shapes, striking colours, distinctive compositions, interpreting these into his images is my way of expressing his experiences. Finding my place amongst constant change and communicating through this form of dialogue.
Mooki’s approach to photography has a broad focus from capturing snippets of seemingly mundane moments to exploring power to provoke a reaction towards an audience that has become oversaturated with visual imagery. Thoughtful images hold multilayered qualities that leave the audience with more ambiguous questions than steadfast answers. He gravitates toward opening conversations through his work, offering social commentary that is both at times distant but also present and engaging.
