Michelle Viljoen is a Cape Town born photographer and creative director. She is an award-winning seasoned creative director, photographer, and artist. Michelle is the principal of Studio Co, a global design firm she founded in 2017, now focusing on Web3.
After spending some time working in fashion photography she returned to her roots of documenting everyday life by visual storytelling.
Her body of work attempts to capture the honesty, vulnerability, and raw beauty of moments that emerge when individuals enter a state of ‘otherness’ that we often overlook.
It aims to incite answers to the questions that the subjects’ expressions and demeanor pose, and by doing so, invites the viewer to step into a state of otherness as well.
Michelle is a founding member of the RAWDAO and her work has also been added to their collection.
Michelle is available for commission-based projects.
