Lee-Ann Olwage is a visual story teller and photographic artist from South Africa. Her work explores themes of identity and universal narratives through long-term collaborative projects.
Her earlier work focussed on social and environmental issues and she partnered with NGO’s who are addressing these issues in new and innovative ways. She aims to create thought provoking narratives that challenges preconceived notions, stereotypes and prejudices and she is driven by her deep love for portraiture and the human experience. Her long term collaborative projects allow subjects to engage in the co-creation of their stories and how they are represented.
With the help of strong female mentors she is finding her unique voice and creating work that unapologetically says I’m here - this is me.
