African Photography: Social Documentary, Part 6

Publié dans Photography  |  juin 29, 2019
Social documentary photography uses narrative to explore significances beyond what is strictly visible. Sometimes the narrative is conveyed through the choreography of elements within a single image or the juxtaposition of several images within a set of pictures. Photographers are storytellers of events and moments from the everyday life. They built long-term relationships with people and communities whom they photograph. Their photos represent a social engagement and political statement necessary to reflect on the transformation of their society.

Performance of Robin Rhode

Publié dans Art Market  |  juin 22, 2019
Robin Rhode is a South African multidisciplinary artist renowned for creating artwork that is informed and formed by urbanism, the city, the streets and its inhabitants. Reminiscent of street art practices, the artist usually works in public spaces, using walls and grounds as his canvas. He transforms simple shapes into elements of playful narratives, interacting with the viewer or imagined presences. His drawings of common objects or abstract shapes are employed as physical elements in a story, often alluding to the act of creation itself.
