Swiss-Guinean photographer, Namsa Leuba has a natural love for Africa, where her roots lie.
Namsa works across the documentary, fashion and performance genres, creating visual imagery that explores the signs and symbols of African cultural heritage; from rituals and ceremonies to statuettes and masquerades.
‘My photography looks at the representation of African identity through the Western imagination.’
Namsa’s theatrical approach within this representation is very noticeable in Vlisco’s S1-2017 campaign, in which she highlighted the features, feel and dynamics of true Wax Hollandais by applying her characteristic visual translation.
