Santu Mofokeng: Stories 5-7

Soweto-Dukathole-Johannesburg

Edited by Santu Mofokeng, Joshua Chuang.

Johannesburg-based photographer Santu Mofokeng (born 1956) first began to dedicate himself to portraying everyday experience in South African townships in 1985, first as a member of the Afrapix collective, and then as a documentary photographer for the African Studies Institute at the University of the Witwatersrand.
This three-volume publication, which continues a groundbreaking reappraisal of the photographer’s archive, presents aspects of life in Soweto, where Mofokeng grew up; Dukathole, a township in the East Rand of Gauteng Province; and Johannesburg, the city in which he worked. Taken together, they invite a nuanced understanding of largely unsung narratives from a crucial period in South African history which saw the demise of apartheid.
PRAISE AND REVIEWS

The New York Times Magazine

Teju Cole

[Mofokeng’s] photographs have used a variety of techniques to adumbrate this world. The pictures drift away from the picturesque and come closer to life itself . . . These are photographs of quiet disorder and imprecision, shadow-work and strategic refusal, evocations of what can neither be hurried along nor extinguished.
