'Faces and Phases'

Zanele Muholi at FRED London Ltd

As Zanele Muholi articulates, the photographic portrait series of 'Faces and Phases' is:

'...an insider's perspective that both commemorates and celebrates the lives of the black queers I have met in my journeys. Some of their stories gave me sleepless nights as I tried to process the struggles that were told to me. Many of the women I met had been violated and I endeavoured not to exploit them further through my work. I set out to establish relationships with them based on a mutual understanding of what it means to be female, lesbian and black today. "Faces and Phases" is about our histories and the struggles that we continue to face.'
