Reflections on the self: Five African Women Photographers @ Southbank Centre

ID Series (2003) - Senayt Samuel

As part of celebrations for the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day, Christine Eyene has curated an exhibition of work by five female photographers of African origin, now on show at the Royal Festival Hall.

The show explores the women’s engagement with the politics of representation through their use of visual narrative and portraiture, and their experiences both in Africa and the diaspora. The artists are: Hélène Amouzou (Togo; lives and works Belgium); Majida Khattari (Morocco; lives and works France); Zanele Muholi (South Africa); Senayt Samuel (Eritrea, lives and works in the UK); and Nontsikelelo Veleko (South Africa).

The show continues until 3rd April, and if you head down this Friday (18th March) at 7.30pm, there’s an introductory talk by Christine – more info about this and the show here.

Opening hours:
Daily, 10–11
