Talented fashion designer, Rich Mnisi has recently partnered with local singer and songwriter, Josh Middleton for a stylish and exclusive photoshoot captured by acclaimed photographer, Antoinette Reinecke.
Dressed in a colourful look from Rich Mnisi’s latest collection, ‘Alkebulan’, the singer was all suited up as he rocked the photoshoot held at the Everard Read Gallery.
“Alkebulan is the oldest name for Africa, here we reimagine our land free of pain and call mother to protect us. The fertile soil of unfettered expression that nourishes our work takes form yet again through the preservation of her story and inspired by my late grandmother. Nwa-Mulamula.”
In this fashion meets music collaboration, Reinecke wanted to showcase a beautiful collision of two unique forms of expressions as they form one piece of art.
“I’ve had the privilege of capturing several portraits of Josh over the years of his music career. I thoroughly enjoy collaborating with him, and we have created work together that I am proud of. This particular shoot was a real highlight. Rich Mnisi’s incredible designs are an amazing source of inspiration and a true work of art in their own right. Add to that the masterpieces in the Everard Read Gallery and Josh’s creative energy and you have all the ingredients necessary for a truly powerful visual.”
