Her unique blend of music, fashion, and attitude had made her one of the most influential artists of the decade. On the other hand, Koto Bolofo, a talented South African-born photographer, was making waves in the fashion and editorial world with his striking images, keen eye for detail, and ability to capture the essence of his subjects.
