The cliché 'you can be anything you want to be' is exactly what the Pretoria based photographer Blunt Moya personifies. Blunt Moya (born Karabo Makole ) got into photography three years ago after his fashion designer friend Makametsane Nkadimeng asked him to shoot his fashion show in 2014. Having not studied photography, Blunt was nervous but excited about the challenge. "I got behind the lens and never looked back", he says.
That shoot then opened doors to many other projects, from modelling, fine arts, weddings, to street photography and corporate events.
2015 Blunt did his first collaboration with friends of his, who are also photographers, KenKhutso and Ayanda Zungu The trio hosted their first exhibition called '#SpeakYourMind'.
The exhibition focused on street photography as well as the #FeesMustFall movement and her Skin Speaks .They held the exhibition in Centurion, Tembisa and Pimville Soweto.
2016 : Held my first solo exhibition titled #TheSuitcase. It was this exhibition that introduced me as a visual artist and a photographer. #TheSuitcase told stories of hardships faced by women on a daily basis, from a man's point of view. It later became a three fold exhibition series, which included art in #TheSuitcase_Painted by Phethego Kgomo and fashion in #TheSuitcase_Truimph by Makametsane Nkadimeng.
2017 :Hosted my second solo exhibition titled #IgaveYouLife on the 8th of April in Mabopane, Pretoria. The project documented the journey of motherhood, from pregnancy to birth.

The Exhibition was showcased again on mother’s day.From the 16th till 20th of June #IgaveYouLife was showcased at the South AfricanState Theatre for the Youth expression festival.
