Launched in 2018 as a community for creatives, travellers, adventurers and lovers of art, I hope to inspire people just as the creative world has done for me.
Hi there! My name is Malika.
What is my major creative influence? Traveling and nature - experiencing spaces, moments of interactions between people, the stillness of the night or the power of Mother Nature. Being enticed by the unfamiliar and being absorbed in adventures of the wilderness, culture, art and history.
I use photography as a means to convey these experiences and reveal the world in a way less known. I am inspired to create images not of what I see, but of how I feel in those moments. Photography has an ability to stir feelings, provoke thoughts and inspire people in the way they live and work. Sharing this with the world has quickly become a huge passion. I aim to inspire people to see nature and the built environment in a new light.
What's my story? I completed a Master’s Degree in Architecture in 2015 at the University of the Witwatersrand. I am currently working as a full-time architect in Johannesburg. I completed part-time advanced photography courses in 2011 and have since been shooting professionally. My passion in photography is landscapes and cityscapes. Architecture and photography go hand in hand for me. Often the one inspires the other which pushes my creative boundaries.
About this website? Currently I provide services as a photographer for all types of shoots, I teach photography classes and I have an online store where you can purchase an original print. I am based in Johannesburg, South Africa but am able to travel for shoots, collabs and other projects
My journey in the creative world has been overwhelming and fully satisfying. Seeing the world in the eyes of both an architect and photographer is the greatest blessing and adventure.
