Terry Kurgan’s “Everyone is Present” by Africa in Word

Scholar and writer Andrew van der Vlies has written an insightful, in-depth review of Terry Kurgan’s new book: “Terry Kurgan is one of South Africa’s most accomplished and sophisticated theorists of her own photographic practice. Her projects, both studio-based and publicly engaged, have frequently explored the mediations of power relations at play in domestic photography. In Everyone is Present she offers a set of sensitive readings of a small cache of family photographs from the mid to late 1930s and early 1940s as its own kind of experimental art practice. The result is a deeply personal meditation on authorship, memory, and photography.”
