Virtual Exhibition: RECLAMATIONS, A Tierney Fellowship Retrospective at the Market Photo Workshop presented at the National Arts Festival

Live from 25 June 2020 to 8 July 2020 on

The Market Photo Workshop is proud to announce the upcoming opening of RECLAMATIONS, a virtual exhibition that will be hosted on Photoform Africa and the National Arts Festival online showcase.

RECLAMATIONS revisit the longest running mentorship programme in the history of African photography that continues to support young photographers in realising visions that reflect both the aspirations and disquiet of their communities. Since 2008, the Tierney Fellowship in South Africa has been leading in the identification of emerging talent in contemporary photography. Tracey Edser, Simangele Kalisa, the late Thabiso Sekgala, Mack Magagane, Tshepiso Mazibuko, Lebohang Kganye, Sipho Gongxeka, Matthew Kay, Tsepo Gumbi, Celimpilo Mazibuko, Tshepiso Mabula ka Ndongeni, together with the Tierney Bamako Award Recipient, Moussa John Kalapo, represent a cross-section of photographic concern that remains urgent in our transitioning societies. Awarded at the Market Photo Workshop, these fellows refocus our attention on matters such as gender, race, migration, the divide between urban and rural, land restitution, spirituality, national and familial memory and reclaims them from the histories of their making.
