The South Africa photographer released an incredible set of images that he captured for British Vogue.
The AfroPunk Festival, a celebration of Afro music, film and art made it’s first ever appearance on African soil since it’s inception in 2005.
Free-spirited festival-goers came dressed for the part at Constitution Hill in Johannesburg as they rounded off 2017. Big afros, bold lipstick, bright colours and statement jewellery were essential components to the sea of eccentric outfits on display.
Fortunately, break-out fashion photographer Trevor Stuurman (who has cemented himself as a household name in SA’s creative circles) was on hand to snap up all the fun and fabulous looks for the international magazine.
The event was career-defining for Trevor and he said it reaffirmed the dreams of other Africans. “A kind reminder dear African child: Your dreams are valid. Honored to have exclusively captured the first @afropunk on African soil for @britishvogue,” he posted on social media.
