Figures and fictions
This major review of South African photography at the V&A presents an opportunity to see work by big name photographers such as David Goldblatt, Jodi Bieber (ironically better known for her World Press winning image of Aisha than her South African work) and Pieter Hugo (better know for his Nigerian work ‘The hyena and other men’ than his South African work) and names which are certainly new to me.
The V&A website provides some fascinating research material and this video from the curator Tamar Garb provides a fascinating introduction
(Full marks to the V&A for providing a transcript here something we just don’t have the resources to do here at the OCA)
Jose Navarro will be leading a study day at the V&A on 2 July starting at 11am. As usual the study day is free and will include entry to the exhibition and refreshments.
