I live in NJ with my husband. I love the life that we have built together. He allows me to be myself in all my craziness and sometimes, my mess. I am insecure, creative, and I am also a procrastinator. I am loving and thoughtful. I am sensitive and bold. I love to laugh. I am unbelievably silly. I love spending time with my family and friends and I love the NY Knicks.
I am a reluctant creative with a deep affection for any creative medium that touches my soul. That makes me feel something.
It took me some time till I understood the power and depth of a still image but once I did, I have never looked back. I love shooting landscapes, I love shadows, I love church steeples but my favorite of all is capturing people and all of their complexities. Images don’t need a narrator. Images don’t need a script. The image tells its own story.
I am Vanessa Blake and I LOVE photography!
I am from Zimbabwe and I currently live in Brooklyn, NY. I am married to the love of my life and I am mommy to Eli.
I am a wildflower and I love to travel to places unknown. I've never met a vegetable I didn't like. I enjoy cooking, dancing in the rain, singing from the depths of my soul, and spending time with my loved ones. I am drawn to things of old, vintage clothing, antiques, photos of yesteryear, etc. Above all I am a believer in Jesus Christ.
In my culture there is a word called 'Ubuntu'. Loosely translated, Ubuntu means oneness, people coming together, interconnectedness. I believe this informs my perspective as a photographer. I am drawn to capturing images of this concept because ubuntu is the essence of life, it is love.
I am Ruvarashe Matiwaza and I LOVE photography!
