Thabiso Sekgala at the Walther Collection

The Walther Collection presents the second exhibition in its series on contemporary photography and video art from Africa and the African Diaspora. The first opened in fall 2015 with The Lay of the Land, a group show presenting photographic approaches to the postcolonial African cityscape. The new project is titled Close to Home at the Walther Collection Project Space until 23 April. The exhibition, “Vividly document[s] the flawed beauty of everyday life … the five young photographers in Close to Home represent a powerful new vision of portrait photography in Africa." The photographs of the late Thabiso Sekgala are included in the exhibition that explores intense social relationships through intimate portrayals of friends and family, in-depth accounts of eclectic sub-cultures and communities, or typological studies of professions.
