This Is The Best Photo Shoot You’ve Seen In A Long Time!

Time to time, I often bump into amazing photography and imagery. I am a huge fan of everything art – from music videos to film, painting and poetry. I love to collect spectacular imagery (one of the reasons I started BMRA) and because of that, I’ve discovered the creative director in me.

A couple months ago, I was on Instagram and by luck, I got to discover Lyra Aoko’s photography project themed “Chorwa”. In Swahili, that basically means being drawn on.

Picture yourself having a tattoo, but in this case, the lifestyle and fashion photographer used colorful matte and two gorgeous models – Tendai Makeri and Bamidele Malaika. The final product was well, mind-blowing.

On a side-note, the blogger has been nominated in the 2016 BAKE awards, the premier blogging awards in Kenya.

I loved the shoot not only because Tendai and Bamidele are exceptionally beautiful and talented, but also because of the ingenuity behind the concept.The gifted photog worked with MUA Abigael King’oo and her project partner Ed Wainaina, whom she met at the Nairobi Fashion Market to come up with this bomb product:
