Tate presents the Tate Photography Series, a new publishing programme providing an introduction to some of the most important and exciting photographers at work today.
Sabelo Mlangeni is based in South Africa and works collaboratively with the people he photographs to tell the stories of communities on the periphery of society. He has focused on Johannesburg, as well as the rural areas surrounding his hometown of Driefontein. Mlangeni’s work seeks to re-center themes of friendship, love and joy in the face of ever-present risk. Above all, his images tell stories of seeking out your people, choosing a family and building a home, wherever you find yourself.
Series One: Community and Solidarity, Includes Titles On: Liz Johnson Artur, Sheba Chhachhi, Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen and Sabelo Mlangeni
