Shacola debuted her otherworldly series, Sunscapes, at the store x exhibition A Shade of Pale, in May of 2018. In these monumental images Shacola literally pictures a vanishing culture. Since 2010, the photographer has travelled to Turkana and watched as one of the most beautiful and oldest tribes struggle to survive while preserving their customs and traditions as they are faced with new political and economic interests. Her photographs are not limited to the realistic depiction of a tough reality, but they highlight a feeling that spreads subcutaneously. Shacola, with the sun as an ally and catalyst, "burns" all that compose the desert landscape, focusing on the vibrant figures that preserve a whole civilization.
