When it comes to representation and the exploration of different narratives, the medium used is important. Photography works in a way that video can’t, and writing expresses things in a way that audio cannot emulate. Each of these media work together in presenting a comprehensive story. None is more important than the other.
Since 2015, when I first started this blog, I have used writing as my primary medium. I am a writer at heart, and I firmly believe in the power of words to convey meaning and communicate. However, I also believe that there are instances when writing alone is insufficient when it comes to telling a story. Through embracing different media, I intend to expand the scope of Mwana Wevhu, include more voices, and open up the possibilities of more collaborations.
