Margaret Ngigi is a passionate emerging photographer, filmmaker, and film production student at the United States International University-Africa. She started her journey withthe camera over the last four years and with filmmaking two years ago.
For Margaret, the focal point in her projects are women, their social roles and the issues they face. The body of work included in I Exist!, aims to represent the wedding veil as a way to consolidate women’s social role in the traditional culture of her country, Kenya.
Margaret’s artistic practise must be considered as her personal journey through femininity, by creating these images she actually reflects and investigates her own condition of being a woman in Kenya.
Margaret’s desire and ability to identify with those young women creates, as for Lebo, an artistic result free of the coldness of a photographic reportage.
