  1. Second the recommendation to see the show. It's very well curated by Eyene who successfully balanced aesthetics with sociological/politcal commentary.

    I found the contrast between the South African photographers, who are based in their homeland, and the rest of the photographers who work from other countries quite striking.

    Also, it's good to see the talented Muholi who has been for too long the "go-to" black South African photographer being joined by her fellow South African , Veleko.
