Am Made of Dark

Sunrise Hands

I remember my first silhouette shot. It was during the KkrewBs Photoshoot back in 2015.

I never knew how to edit or modify the photo in any way. I just loved the dark figures that formed from light. From then I have never stopped shooting silhouettes.

My next stop was in Uhuru Park where my photographer friend and I experimented the Nikon D3200 for the first time.

Then we decided to get more creative…

We happened to go for a hangout at Nairobi Safari Walk and my thirst for silhouettes was never quenched by these.

Ngong Hills never filled my hunger either…

Then during a worship experience in CITAM Thika Road, a pianist friend of mine asked for a photo and I shot a silhouette instead. From that day on they nicknamed me ‘Silowet’

On a trip to Mombasa, I chose to shoot silhouettes at dawn

And that fused with figures of people become masterpieces.

You can also get a little creative with silhouettes.

My love for silhouettes is unquenchable – my profile picture on social platforms is a silhouetted portrait of me. This is why I say, “I am made of Dark”
