Osborne Macharia is a contemporary and commercial photographer raised and based in Nairobi with a Bachelor degree in Architecture and a background in design. Osborne loves digital arts and is fascinated by dynamic lighting which he tries to integrate into all his images through composites of full on-location lighting. He would like to see African artists work in all sectors, including film, music, art and photography and compete on a global stage and gain the recognition they deserve.
Osborne Macharia’s series “Shujaa Misuli”, meaning Muscle Warriors in Swahili celebrates Kenyan sport heroes that have achieved a great deal but their accomplishments have not been fully recognized. It is a self-funded and personal project.
“Through my work I believe I’m in the process of showing a different side to what Africa is known for. In my journey through art and visual stories, I’d like to show Strength, Passion, Vision, Identity and mastery of the crafts. I’d like to tell our stories through my eyes, through my experience or other people’s experiences and fantasies. Our stories are many but few have been able to visually capture them and present them to the world in a positive light. I hope to do so.”
