About Njami Simon

This volume offers a concise introduction to the large-format colour photography of Zwelethu Mthethwa (b.1960), South Africa's most prominent living photographer. Mthethwa's portraits of Cape Town citizens emphasize qualities of defiance, pride and endurance of hardship, with what the New Yorker described as "an energetic ambivalence between documentary photography and fine-art portraiture".show more
