KAMAU Z. AKABUEZE is an artist without an artist’s statement – and likely always will be. Self taught in photography – as he is in most of his pursuits – he considers himself a lifelong student of the things that matter most in his life, with photography running a close second to fatherhood. Born in Pittsburgh, PA, Kamau had traveled the globe extensively throughout his career in marketing and advertising, prior to becoming a photographer. Though he laments not having a camera with him to document those journeys and experiences, the images that Kamau now creates are fueled by a deep desire to explore and illuminate the vast contrasts in life that he’s seen and encounters on a daily basis. His work has been exhibited at the Washington School of Photography and Sweet Lorraine Gallery in Brooklyn, and has been featured on BuzzFeed. Kamau’s mobile phone photography has been featured by SHOOTERmagazine, FLTR Magazine and Lensblr.
