Close to Home
New Photography from Africa

2/4/2016 — 5/14/2016

Conceptual Framework

Close to Home is the second exhibition in The Walther Collection's multi-year series on contemporary photography and video art from Africa and the African Diaspora. Presented thematically until 2017, the series builds upon the collection's longstanding focus on African photography to provide an in-depth engagement with emerging artists.

Vividly documenting the flawed beauty of everyday life, the five young photographers in Close to Home represent a powerful new vision of portrait photography in Africa. Andrew Esiebo, Sabelo Mlangeni, Mimi Cherono Ng'ok, Musa N. Nxumalo, and Thabiso Sekgala explore intense social relationships through intimate portrayals of friends and family, in-depth accounts of eclectic sub-cultures and communities, or typological studies of professions.
