“My work attempts to convey a truthful narrative and demonstrate how I engage with issues of invisibility, re-contextualization, and appropriation to preconceived ideas of black personhood. I look at how our unchosen histories have shaped our contemporary state. Furthermore, my work speaks directly to the common reality amongst people of color of an ‘obscured history.'” (Tamary Kudita)

Tamary Kudita (b. 1994) was recently named Open Photographer of the Year at the 2021 Sony World Photography Awards. She was born in Zimbabwe and traces her ancestry to Orange Free State, historical Boer state in Southern Africa. Kudita received collegiate education at Michaelis School of Fine Art at the University of Cape Town, graduating in 2017.  She maintains an active studio practice in photography, exhibiting widely in Africa.  Tamary will also be in residence in The Betsy Writer’s Room at The Betsy Hotel during The WOPHA Congress (Women Photographers International Archive) an initiative presented in association with the Feminist Art Coalition.   @tamary_kudita
