Zanele Muholi South African Photographer
I love photography. Especially when it’s enveloped in resonant storytelling. I’ve been exploring African photographers in depth recently and hopefully you find their stories as captivating as I have.
Zanele Muholi is an electrifying photographer and visual activist from South Africa. Her work focuses mainly on LGBTQI community encouraging viewers to observe them as the individuals that they are and promote understanding.
“Fine artists deal with finery, but I deal with painful material.”
“It is personal issues that makes me do what I do, for I have been raped more than 50 times by just listening to what women who have confessed and confirmed their love for other women have been through.”
