Peter Mukhaye | Kenya

“I look at our potential as the people of this continent, the pool of knowledge and resources and what we can make of it in order to remind the world that all life began with us and we no longer are to be looked down upon, but viewed as effectors of change and revolutions.”

Peter Mukhaye is 24-year-old Kenyan Conceptual photographer and finalist of Architecture prize at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology in Nairobi, Kenya. 

His work centres around African Futurism and claims issues of Sustainability, Mental Health and the process of establishing the African Identity.

He got introduced to photography as he liked to take pictures of natural environments when he was at the college. When he was at school,he was required to prepare concepts and narratives.

This idea introduced him to the concept of creating images that abstractly tell daily stories. Hence, the photographer has self-taught himself different tools of expression that shaped his craft.
