Continuing the arrangement with The Bakehouse, in Gatehouse of Fleet (you might remember me writing about it when I photographed Bashabi a few weeks ago), on Saturday past I was invited to photograph guest poet, Tawona Sithole, and his brother, Ernest.
The brothers are based in Glasgow, though they’re originally from Zimbabwe. Along with artist, Tarneem Al Mousawi, they founded a group called "Seeds of Thought" combining poetry, music and art.
They took to the camera well, quite quickly overcoming any apprehension.
Although, they didn’t always find it easy to keep a straight face
They also play mbira (sometimes known as a thumb piano), which has quite an amazing sound.
Between The Bakehouse and The Mill Sessions, I’m getting to meet some really interesting people. It’s just as shame I only get to spend an hour with them.
For those on Facebook, you can find more out about Seeds of Thought here:
