The Afro Dandy

A video portrait based on the life of Tatenda Malcolm Phiri, a South African Dandy.

After last year's fashion shoot with Dandys inside a township near Stellenbosch with my brother, I wanted to dive deeper into the mindset behind these good-looking men in South Africa. (The photo series and behind-the-scenes video can be found here). 

The Dandy's inspiration in life comes literally from everything he sees, reads and feels. When he is not working his daytime job, he roams around to find vintage items and to get inspired by others. He advocates a lifestyle of appreciation, passion and elegance.
