Synopsis: Since Apartheid's fall in 1994, South African photography has exploded from the grip of censorship onto the world stage. A key figure in this movement is Zwelethu Mthethwa, whose portraits powerfully frame black South Africans as dignified and defiant individuals, even under the duress of social and economic hardship. Photographing in urban and rural industrial landscapes, Mthethwa documents a range of aspects in South Africa, from domestic life and the environment to landscape and labor issues. Mthethwa's work challenges the conventions of both Western documentary work and African commercial studio photography, marking a transition away from the visually exotic and diseased--or "Afro-pessimism," as curator Okwui Enwezor has described it--and employing a fresh approach marked by color and collaboration. "Zwelethu Mthethwa," the artist's long awaited first comprehensive monograph provides an overview of his work to date, and features the stunning portraits that have brought him international acclaim.
Born in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, in 1960, Zwelethu Mthethwa received his BFA from the Michaelis School of Fine Art, University of Cape Town, a then white-only university he entered under special ministerial consent. In 1989, he received his Master's degree while on a Fulbright Scholarship to the Rochester Institute of Technology. Mthethwa has had more than 35 international solo exhibitions and has been featured in numerous group shows, including the 51st Venice Biennale in 2005 and "Snap Judgments: New Positions in Contemporary African Photography" at the International Center of Photography, New York, in 2006. He is represented by Jack Shainman Gallery, New York, and lives in Cape Town, South Africa.

Book Description aperture; NY, 2010. Book Condition: Sehr gut. Qu.-8°. 119 S.; illustriert. Sehr gutes Ex. - Photographs by Zwelethu Mthethwa Essay by Okwui Enwezor Interview by Isolde Brielmaier / Since apartheid's fall in 1994, South African photography has exploded from the grip of censorship onto the world stage. A key figure in this movement is Zwelethu Mthethwa, whose internationally acclaimed work addresses the economic and political reality of present-day South Africa. His stunning large-scale portaits often portray rural immigrants on the margins of South African cities, revealing the efforts of his subjects to maintain their cultural identities through their choices in clothing, and the decoration of their dwellings and places of worship. The artist's later work also addresses the evolving relationship of South Africa to neighboring nations and to the global context. Working collaboratively with his subjects, Mthethwa employs a fresh approach marked by color and a dynamic exchange between the photographer and the photographed. His singular oeuvre challenges both traditional conventions of African commercial studio photography and Western documentary work, marking a transition away from the typical exoticized images that encapsulate what curator Okwui Enwezor describes as "afro-pessimism." This book, the artist's first monograph, provides an overview of his work to date. (Verlagstext) // Zwelethu Mthethwa (* 1960 in Durban) ist ein südafrikanischer Fotograf und Maler.
