But Ndiki was nar­rowly pipped by #Trend­ing’s in­ter­net star of 2015, Tony Gum. You know you’ve made it when you get a dou­ble tap and a nod in the form of an on­line fea­ture from US Vogue. This was the year for the 20-year-old Cape Town con­cep­tual pho­tog­ra­pher and artist. Vogue called her “the coolest girl in Cape Town”, a sen­ti­ment we can’t dis­agree with since she used a ba­sic cam­era and el­e­ments from her sur­round­ings to cre­ate a new nar­ra­tive around self-por­trai­ture and the dig­i­tal world in South African art – a feat that saw her ex­hibit at the FNB Joburg Art Fair. – Mil­isuthando Bon­gela
