A solo exhibition by photographer Alex Zalewska
Launching Saturday 2nd September, 7-10pm, free entry
Open daily 3rd-12th September 2017, 9am-late, free entry
Ubuntu — the most recent photography project by Alex Zalewska — was shot in the township outside Johannesburg called Warrville and explores post-apartheid life in black communities. It celebrates the spirit and strength of South Africans who face endemic violence, extreme economic hardship, and racism that has not abated, while all the time maintaining dignity, hope and courage. Word Ubuntu in Zulu means ‘Humanity’ and is often used in a more philosophical sense meaning “the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity”.
All profits from sold works will go towards ACO Africa, charity in Uganda.
