9. TREVOR STUURMAN, PHOTOGRAPHER
The photographer started off his year by capturing the fashionable revellers at Afropunk Fest Johannesburg for British Vogue.
The publication later commissioned him to photograph the street style at Arise Fashion Week in Nigeria. Naomi Campbell also commissioned pictures from Stuurman. A few months later, Ciara asked him to style her music video for Freak Me, alongside Rich Mnisi.
This is not to mention his local feature on the cover of GQ Style magazine or his partnership with Absolut Vodka to create limited-edition bottle designs during the One Source Live festival, celebrating African creativity. He was also named an Image Maker of 2018 by Marie Claire.
