Social Landscape Project
Exhibition of « Transition »


The Market Photo Workshop, together with the prestigious Les Rencontres d’Arles has conceptualised a project in response to the France South Africa Season. The Social Landscape project is one that investigates ideas around land and the role that photography continues to play in the representation and re-imagining of land. The project includes the work of 6 prominent South African photographers (Santu Mofokeng, Zanele Muholi, Pieter Hugo, Jo Ractliffe, Cedric Nunn and Thabiso Sekgala) who have worked alongside 6 acclaimed French photographers (Patrick Tourneboeuf, Raphaël Dallaporta, Alain Willaume, Thibaut Cuisset, Philippe Chancel and Harry Gruyaert) to develop bodies of work that will speak to a land experience unique to various sites in and around South Africa.

The launch of the project will include various elements that explore many aspects of the questions of land and landscape that are still very relevant in South Africa.
