LIKE SHIFTING SANDS

Abstract

These photographs are from Santu Mofokeng's exhibition Like Shifting Sands which focuses on the life and realities on the farms and in the rural towns in Transvaal. The exhibition, in the words of the photographer, attempts to depict 'ordinary Black South Africans going about the day-tcr day business of living'. In the process Mofokeng establishes his subjects as actors, neither as pseudcrheroic, nor as helpless victims. At the heart of this work is a sensitive and compassionate insight into the low-key but profound resistance inherent in the 'basic decency of marginalized and deprived people'.
