South African photographer Zanele Muholi’s (b. 1972) work is focused on the lives of LGBTI people in Africa. Her mostly black and white photography includes portraits of LGBTI people and photos of people embracing and loving each other, but it also documents memorial services of women who have been victim to homophobia.
Zanele Muholi’s photographs are a direct response to the epidemic of ‘curative rapes’ and murders of black lesbians and queer people in South Africa today. As a self-described ‘visual activist’, Muholi seeks to challenge the status quo with intimate portraits of the LGBTQI South African experience. The exhibition fo(u)nd features a selection of Muholi’s works from Faces and Phases, Beulahs and Being (2006-present), among others.
