TedxDar 2010 – Sara Markes & Mejah Mbuya: Dar’s Street Level

I am a huge fan of Sarah Markes’ work. She has managed to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. Mejah Mbuya is talking us through how her illustrations are telling the story of contemporary Dar and also its history. The images are beautiful in their elegant simplicity juxtaposed by a very precise aesthetic. Well, please go over to her blog and enjoy.
