Thabiso Sekgala was a distinctive photographer born in 1981 in Johannesburg, South Africa. He died in the same city in October 2014, until when he was fronting clear ideas about the world around him with the use of the photographic medium.
The selection of works presented below is a survey of Thabiso’s artistic practice. His work explores themes of abandonment, memory, spatial politics and concept of home.
“In photography I am inspired by looking at human experience whether lived or imagined," Sekgala once expressed. "Images capture our history and who we are, our presence and absence. Growing up in both rural and urban South Africa influences my work. The dualities of these both environments inform the stories I am telling through my photographs, by engaging issues around land, peoples’ movement, identity and the notion of home”.
