About Us

Hello!

We are Tazzama. In Swahili, tazama is translated as ‘to see’. We are a virtual art space for hosting exhibitions for photography and artwork.

A vision (see what we did there) of two photographers and creative technologists, Tazzama was born and built in Kenya from the realisation that photographers find it difficult to host exhibitions due to the immense cost involved in hosting an exhibition, and more recently due to the virus going around.

Our objective is to simplify the process of hosting immersive and beautiful exhibitions – no expensive venues, printing costs and expensive bottles of champagne to provide viewers! We present your art to the public; allowing them to virtually walk through a physical space.

We hope you enjoy your experience; feel free to reach out to us and drop us a note!

**P.S. we also cater to exhibits that are not photography related, please get in touch for any queries.
