Sourcing and curating beautiful content is an everyday job for the DECO team and it excites us so much when we find passionate and talented creative individuals that we can work with. We had the honour of meeting and watching Rizqua Barnes in action at our 100th issue celebration just last week.

Rizqua is a portrait and wedding photographer based in Cape Town, her attention to space and people really helped to capture our special event in the perfect light (you can find these in our upcoming issue)! Take a little look in to her life and work…

I love interacting with people – always keen on learning and getting ideas from all that surrounds me
