Wayta Patmo

Wayta has always told visual stories.

Her mix of Black, Asian and European culture creates a kaleidoscopic lens through which she tells her own story of rebellion, strength and cultural diversity.

As vibrant and beautiful as this diversity is, it’s still hugely underrepresented in the world of fashion and media at large.

She started shooting this particular story coming straight out of the renowned Art Academy in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Working in LA, New York, Paris and London, Wayta is now navigating the Amsterdam waters while continuing her international work. As the global village is getting more interconnected, the time for her colourful take on beauty is now.

Patmo’s vision is to combine reality with commerce by creating a wonderful mix of straight up and fashion portraits.
