Tahir Carl Karmali 

Tahir is a Nairobi based photographer and digital & mixed media artist. He started his career in the corporate world but has been constantly in touch with the creative industry, constantly exploring the philosophies of existentialism whether through ink on canvas or the camera lens. His current work experiments with the digital layering of landscapes and cityscapes to create kaleidoscopic pattern and also using line and form to interject pure pattern. These recent works question our points of perspective and relates to how individuals choose their frame of reference. Find out more, and see more of his work HERE
