7 years ago, deep in the heart of Africa, curiosity beckoned, drumming louder and louder, until that destiny altering moment, where we find Kudzai King, purchasing his very first camera. It was the gripping works of acclaimed photographer, Michele Huddy-Fortmann, which ignited Kudzai’s shift from male modeling to fashion photography. Having captured Kudzai with her lens in many of her works, Michele would then go on to mentor him, until he was ready to go out into the world and capture a beauty of his own.
Kudzai moved from Harare to Cape Town, where he blossomed and established himself as an award winning photographer. Then, hearing the drums yet again, he took the big leap to the big apple, New York City, where he presently works and resides. The rest is a dream unfolding.
Kudzai enjoys creating strikingly emotive images, inspired by a culmination of passion, feminine boldness, and masculine tenderness, all encompassed by cultural diversity, social taboo and a touch of edgy, yet purposeful, controversy.
