South Africa, Chromatic Existences: Jodi Bieber
In South Africa, Jodi Bieber returns (brandishing her book Soweto) to the sites where this photographic project took form. By her own admission, she who has known the headline-making days of the townships, and who documented their harshness, here wants instead to show the people in their normal, everyday lives. With much humanity and respect, she shows couples, old and young, "at home". "Fear comes from the unknown," she says. Her photography dispels fear.
