THIS AUDIO IS VISUAL : PULENG MONGALE

WORDS BY SIBABALWE NGXOLA

This Audio Is Visual is a podcast engaging African photographers on their work and journey as image makers. It is both a masterclass and blueprint archive for new image makers.  The conversations will vary according to what each photographer specializes in.

The first 2020 episode features Puleng Mongale, a self-described storyteller with a love for documenting the authenticities of life while balancing the intricacies of being a modern day creative.

“I am led by intuition, feelings so I let that guide me basically.  I just like making the most of what I’ve got at that moment in time.”

Puleng speaks on the struggles of being black and creative in the advertising space where output is king and value is judged by how much one can churn in silence.   With a fresh eye and a bold narrative, she takes on the value of collaboration over the power of self-execution. Here, she shares some of her personal methods revealing how hers and others’ experience with aspects of history lead her through the journey of finding her creative voice and set her content apart. 

“Once you have found your voice and that thing that you love, no doubt.  Everyone is capable of developing a signature. Nobody does shit the way you do.”
