Sydelle Willow Smith is a photographer/video director working across Africa focusing on memory, migration, and identity. Her studies included courses at The Market Photo Workshop and an MSc in African Studies from the University of Oxford. One of the most exciting features of her work, while exhibiting globally, is the extent to which it is accessible to public audiences experimenting with modes of public participation. It is within the context of public participation that she shines and where she has drawn together her interests in media, anthropology, and socio-political interventions. Smith cofounded Sunshine Cinema, the solar powered mobile cinema initiative, in 2013. (Photo shot in Mombassa, Kenya, 2017. Photo sponsors: Doug and Susan Jones.)
