Zanele Muholi shares motivations for documenting South Africa’s LGBTI community in this preview of the upcoming Johannesburg episode from Season 9 of the Art in the Twenty-First Century television series.
Shown taking photographs for the ongoing Faces and Phases series, Muholi describes a dedication to what has become a lifelong project. “I am a member of the community. We hardly find images that speaks of love and joys of LGBTI individuals,” says the artist. “I told myself that I would do better than any other outsider to project our lives.”
Johannesburg premieres September 21, 2018 at 9:00 p.m. on PBS.
