Conceptual Framework

The Walther Collection presents a solo exhibition of photographs by Santu Mofokeng, bringing together poetic and resonant images by one of South Africa's most renowned artists. Santu Mofokeng: A Metaphorical Biography features selections from six powerful series exploring landscape and social identity.

Mofokeng's nuanced, slowed-down work resists the sensational, providing an intimate vision of South African communities, while his evocative landscapes consider memories of historical trauma. This exhibition spans three decades of Mofokeng's career and includes prints shown for the first time in the US.
