Kudzanai Chiurai and Sue Williamson on Fotografia Europea show

Photographic works by Chiurai and Williamson feature on A Short History of South African Photography (12 May – 9 July), curated by Rory Bester, Thato Mogotsi and Rita Potenza, at Chiostri di San Pietro in Reggio Emilia. The show, part of Fotografia Europea, is a presentation of 100 photographs taken in South Africa over the last 100 years, carefully selected from archival, museum and photographers’ collections. In positioning the photographs as placeholders, the exhibition recognises that photographs are moments and momentary, not only in time and space, but also in making and unmaking histories.
