ZANELE MUHOLI: Faces and Phases 10 Year Anniversary.

Image
Join us as we celebrate and commemorate the lives and times of our living legends and ancestors who've made a difference in our LGBTI communities of the South.



The Faces and Phases series of black and white portraits by Zanele Muholi focuses on the commemoration and celebration of black lesbians' lives. Muholi embarked on this project in 2006, taking portraits of individuals from the townships in South Africa. In 2008, after the xenophobic, transphobia and homophobic attacks that led to the mass displacement of people in that country, Muholi decided to expand the ongoing series to include photographs of the series participants from different countries. Collectively, the portraits are an act of visual activism. Depicting individuals of various ages and backgrounds, this gallery of images offers a powerful statement about the similarities and diversity that exist within the human race.
