On the occasion of International Women’s Day 2020, PH Museum invited Firecracker‘s founder Fiona Rogers to select 10 women photographers whose work is making an impact and underline why we should follow and support them.
Established in 2011, Firecracker is an online platform dedicated to supporting female photographers worldwide by showcasing their work and awarding an annual grant to enable an artist to fund her project.
Rogers selected South African photographer Tshepiso Mazibuko. She states “I was first introduced to Mazibuko’s work via the development project Of Soul And Joy, and have enjoyed seeing this young woman’s work expand over the years. She’s enjoyed several exhibitions over the last few years, and won the Tierney Fellowship in 2017. Hoping to see more of this Johannesburg based photographer this year.”
PH Museum showcases Mazibuko’s photogravure Mshaya’zafe Hostel – Warren Editions collaborated with her on the making of this print in 2018.
