Michelle Viljoen is a Cape Town born photographer & creative director. Over the last 8 years, Michelle has developed a passion for street photography, accumulating a body of work that focuses on documenting the quiet and often unnoticed moments of quotidian life in big cities around the world. Michelle is a founding member of The RAW DAO as well as a core member and community manager at Obscura.
"From The Other Side" is an ongoing photo series that looks at moments captured through windows across the globe. My body of work explores the honesty, vulnerability, and raw beauty of moments that emerge when individuals enter a state of ‘otherness’ that is often overlooked. Each photograph aims to tell a visual story by evoking emotion and a sense of connection within the viewer: It serves to remind us that no matter who we are, where we come from, or where our personal journeys have taken us, we all share in emotions and moments that connect us.
This series is a culmination of five years of work, with scenes from Cape Town, New York City, London, and Japan. This release includes a set of 30 photographs.
