Zanele Muholi, LGBTI photography exhibition, South Africa, London 

"The first major UK exhibition of South African visual artist and activist Zanele Muholi is coming to the Tate Modern.

Since the early 00s, Muholi has used film and photography as a tool to elevate Black LGBTI people in South Africa. The exhibition will feature 260 photographs, from their very first body of work Only Half the Picture to the ongoing series Somnyama Ngonyama.

Muholi’s work interrogates dominant ideologies and representations, “presenting the participants in their photographs as fellow human beings bravely existing in the face of prejudice, intolerance, and often violence”."

Be sure to check out the example slideshow - there's some excellent work here.
