17 South African photographers have their work from the last decade now showing at the V&A, their images directly engaging with the country’s political and photographic past, with each photographer exploring both the metaphoric potential of the medium and the “truths” in the figure that go some way in forming an outsiders reality. These representatives are “local in character and subject matter, but of wider international interest because of their combined intensity”, their work containing an “ambiguity between literal and figurative interpretation.”
The exhibition runs until the 17th July and is at the V&A
