Doyle Wham presents its inaugural exhibition, PORTR-8 featuring All, Brian Sambi, John Baloyi, Marc Posso, Morgan Otagburuagu, Ojwoook, Shitanda, Tuva Wolf, Yannis Davy Guibinga.

PORTR-8 is a celebration of emerging talent, that features an exciting array of innovative, experimental portrait photography by 8 African artists, from Gabon, Nigeria, Namibia, Kenya and Mozambique. The represented artists vary widely in terms of their backgrounds, frames of reference, and photographic style, but are united by the desire to expand and challenge traditional notions and narrow interpretations of Africa, African art, and African society.

From the 8th – 24th of October, Doyle Wham will also be hosting a 2-week physical pop-up of the exhibition at ECAD Gallery in London.
