ABOUT ME

INDERA TAMARA

PHOTOGRAPHY + ART DIRECTION

I work as a multidisciplinary artist, primarily using photography, creative writing, video, performance and digital designing, to create a space for diverse identities to become represented in arts & culture. This process is inspired by my interest in the art movement Afrofuturism, which seeks to liberate the social experience of black people by creating a positive future that is subversive to hegemonic stereotypes in society. Inspired by this philosophy, in my thesis for my BA at Camberwell College of Arts, I proposed the first mixed race perspective of Afrofuturism. As I am a mixed race woman, who experiences the social complexities of both whiteness and blackness, it is important for me to explore the relationship between the two binary oppositions. The theme of twoness is subsequently reoccurring through the way that I capture my subject matter and this is shown through my serious, yet playful gestures.
