Great Zimbabweans project

The Great Zimbabweans project was created as a way of commemorating Zimbabwe’s 40 years of Independence, in a time when most of the recent press about Zimbabwe has been overwhelmingly negative. This personal¬† project features portraits and interviews of forty inspirational Zimbabweans as a way of showing the side of Zimbabwe which has not been much celebrated – the diversity, talent, creativity, kindness, and entrepreneurship for which Zimbabweans have become known. The project features a selection of hand-picked artists, writers, actors, musicians, humanitarians, activists, journalists, sportspeople, scientists, human rights lawyers, and conservationists. The project took place over a period of 2 years and was mostly shot at a home studio in Harare. The project was released in December 2021 and has been self-published as a limited edition coffee table book.
