Nikki Zakkas is a rising Johannesburg-based photographer who recently caught our eye (via We-Are-Awesome) with her colorful street style editorial for South Africa’s recently launched Unlabelled Magazine. The shoot stars Soweto-born fashion gurus (and sisters) Tumi and Itumeleng Nko in a series of photos in Joburg CBD. “My work is really about combing my two studied interests fashion and photography,” she wrote Okayafrica. With her Seeing Double photos, Zakkas says she intends for the images to act as facilitators for expressing local urban identity. “I hope to tell an interesting and honest fashion story through my photographs,” she told us. Below, Zakkas shares more on the story behind Seeing Double.
