Everyday inspiration & self-expression by OH

The notion of value

Kenyan photographer Thandiwe Muriu is serving up some serious food for thought with her latest piece “You Thought You Could Throw Me Away” . It’s like she’s turned the camera into a mirror, reflecting not just what’s in front of it but also what’s “overlooked” and deemed as “disposable” by society.

She confronts issues surrounding identity and self-perception while seeking to redefine female empowerment through the use of everyday materials such as fabric and common household items… So next time you think to toss something away think, and ask yourself, “Could this be art?”

Spoiler alert: With the right eyes, everything can be.
