‘Makasutu’ – “Powerful, penetrating, beautiful and stunning B&W portraits…” by Jason Florio


With little command of the local language, I could only but ask my subjects to stand and look directly into the lens. With little direction on my part, I found that the subjects in front of the camera would become silently quizzical of themselves and how they wanted to be portrayed.” Jason Florio – ‘Makasutu’ award-winning portraits
