London Fashion Week

Hello! Yebo! 

My name is Nompumelelo Ncube or Nom, I am currently working as a photojournalist and public historian, passionate about telling stories that make us think about who we are, where we come from and why we are here. I believe the past is fundamental in our understanding of the present. My practice infuses history to reimagine a better future and humanise identities that have undergone subjugation. My specialism is in representation and self-image, with my research and photographic work exploring identity, culture and dress. 


The intersectionalities within my identity have taught me the importance in continuing to diversify the lenses in which we view marginalised communities. My mission is to build bridges across the Black diaspora for us to exchange ideas on heritage, culture and Blackness. 

I work professionally as a photographer, creative producer, facilitator, consultant within the arts and heritage sector, and a lecturer in the academy.

My career began in my first academic semester during my undergrad when one of my lecturers hired me to photograph content for her clients after my first assignment. This instilled a belief in my craft and I found myself attending London Fashion Week photographing attendees and being invited to fashion shows like Tokyo James and PRIVATE POLICY. Since then clients, companies and institutions I have worked with/exhibited at are We Don’t Settle, Kwanzaa Collective UK, National Gallery in Bulawayo, Appetite, AFROPUNK, Sethembile Msezane, Camden Black Creatives, Selly Manor Museum, Jeruty Films founded by film director Anderson West, Debt Justice, Restoke, St Mary's Hub, Birmingham Museum Trust, Johnson Tiles, Material Lab London, UnLtd, Brick Lane Gallery, Fuzzy Duck in Media City UK, Open Eye Gallery, Bolton and Salford University.
