IZINTOMBI

Izintombi documents young women of the Zulu culture. The collection acknowledges young women as they play an integral role in preserving Zulu culture and heritage. This is evident in how girls use the richness of the Zulu language during certain rites of passage and customs to archive the Zulu narrative and layered history through song and dance. The collection celebrates these young flowers in a poetic portrait approach, set on the backdrop of the landscape of rural KwaZulu Natal.
