Zingisa Ntwana

A budding photographer who uses her work to uplift women of colour.

Zingisa Ntwana began taking pictures in 2016, using a Samsung that wasn’t hers. After receiving a small camera from her father, her interest developed into a passion.

She later established Wak’dala, which means “of old.” It’s a persona and brand with which to explore her creative identity. Now, she uses photography to uplift black women.

She photographed Zoe Modiga and Langa Mavuso at the UJ Jazz Weekend this year and her photography has been recognised by the UJ Arts and Culture Faculty.

She is currently expanding her skill set to include cinematography and film.
