DECEMBER EDITION

GEREMEW TIGABU

I FEEL LIKE, SHADOWS ARE SELF-REFLECTIONS, MIRROR-LIKE TO THEIR PEOPLE.

ABOUT

My name is GEREMEW TIGABU, a passionate street photographer based in Addis. I believe that the streets of Addis hide many secrets waiting to be scavenged. This passion has led me to present what I love at the Addis Foto Fest 2016, become one of the winners at the 2017 “celebrate Africa photography competition”. My work was also published on the guardian.

CHALLENGES

To name quite a few,
– Consistent ill-treatment of photography by security forces,
– Government “reluctance” to support creatives
– Understanding that being photographed in an open space is okay And so on…

BLACK AND WHITE

I chose black and white as a medium because I’m obsessed with old photographs. The black and white also helps clear the clutter and my photos send a clear message thanks to it. The interaction between humans and their shadows also fascinated me. I feel like, shadows are self-reflection, mirror-like to their people. They don’t lie, they magnify people. I believe they have truths to tell about the human soul. It’s interesting.
