I am independent documentary photographer, sometimes photojournalist and videographer currently based in Harare, Zimbabwe. The focus of my work, since I began photographing in 2012, is human rights and social issues mostly in my native country, Zimbabwe.

I am a holder of an Honours degree in English Literature from the University of Zimbabwe and Photojournalism and documentary photography qualification from the Market Photo Workshop in South Africa.

In 2013, I was shortlisted for the ZimRights Human Rights Journalist of the Year Award for a portrait documentary story on a local power utility’s negligence that has cost people their lives and has left others permanently disabled.

In 2016, I participated in the first World Press Photo Foundation East Africa Masterclass.I am a founding member of the Zimbabwe Association of Female Photographers, a member of Women Photograph, and a Magnum Foundation Social Justice Fellow.
