Andile Buka, a self-taught photographer based in Johannesburg, is one of the most exciting young talents at the moment, who has established himself at the forefront of South African creative scene.

Shot all on film, his work is mainly focused on Johannesburg – the CBD, street portraits and personal photo series, shot with precision and measured style.

Crossing Strangers, his first published body of work, is an exploration of the landscape of Johannesburg and it’s people.
The photo-book is a personal visual representation of Andile’s experiences of the city and its people, both past and present.

Included in the book is an essay by Rangoato Hlasane (Co-Founder of Keleketla Media Arts Project) titled Monuments To The Eternal Spaces.

The book was launched a few weeks ago and exhibited at the Tokyo International Book Fair, Asia’s leading trade show for the publishing, in Japan.

The talented photographer is now in Nigeria, for the Lagos Photo Festival, a month-long festival that includes exhibitions from 35 international photographers spanning 18 countries.

Patience, dedication and passion, the three things we appreciate about young artist like Andile, who stop at nothing.
