Product Description

Fourthwall Books and Gallery MOMO are pleased to announce the publication of Andrew Tshabangu: Footprints, the first major survey book on the work of this acclaimed South African photographer.

The book, sponsored and supported by Gallery MOMO and Standard Bank, coincides with the exhibition Andrew Tshabangu: Footprints at the Standard Bank Gallery, Johannesburg. Andrew Tshabangu has been making photographs for over twenty years. He has traversed the city and the countryside—in South Africa and elsewhere—with an ease born of deep familiarity and empathy, and in order to show everyday lives made meaningful by the rhythms of work, faith and leisure. Each series in this important book suggests a deep contemplation of the places, rituals and material conditions that have structured black life in South Africa. The work suggests an understanding of the ways in which people have made virtues of necessity, transformed the marginal spaces bequeathed to them by apartheid and mobilised the terms of their own political and spiritual freedom.

We are closed for the December holiday season, we will be back on the 15th of January 2018 and will only process orders then.
