Zanele Muholi

 

A photographer and self-proclaimed visual activist, Zanele Muholi explores black lesbian and gay identities and politics in contemporary South Africa. For her series “Faces and Phases” (2006-11), Muholi photographed more than 200 portraits of South Africa’s lesbian community. “The portraits are at once a visual statement and an archive,” she has said, “marking, mapping, and preserving an often invisible community for posterity.” Muholi’s sensitive portraits challenge the stigma surrounding gays and lesbians in South Africa, debunk the common rhetoric that homosexuality is un-African, and address the preponderance of hate crimes against homosexuals in her native country. Among other subjects, she has captured the survivors of “corrective rape”. In April 2012, thieves broke into Muholi’s Cape Town apartment and stole over 20 hard drives holding years of photographic documentation, suggesting the continued controversy and sensitivity surrounding the issues that Muholi’s works confront.

Brent Stirton

Brent Stirton is a senior staff photographer for Reportage by Getty Images, New York. He specializes in documentary work and is known for his alternative approaches. He travels an average of ten months of the year on assignment.

Stirton works on a regular basis for the Global Business Coalition on HIV/Aids, Tuberculosis and Malaria. He has been a longtime photographer for the World Wildlife Fund for Nature, shooting global campaigns on sustainability. He also works for the Ford and Clinton Foundations, the Nike Foundation, and the World Economic Forum.

He has received awards from the Overseas Press Club, the Frontline Club, the Deadline Club, Days Japan, POY, China International Photo Awards, the Lead Awards, Graphis, American Photography, American Photo, and the American Society of Publication Designers. He has received five awards from the World Press Photo Foundation and has also received awards from the United Nations for his work on the environment and in the field of HIV.

“As journalists we often have to find new ways to tell an old story,” he says. “I believe in trying to tell that story in the most powerful way I can under the limited circumstance that time brings to any assignment. I am trying to be less concerned with who I am working for and more concerned about what I am doing with my time. This is [a] crucial period in our history on this planet and I want to feel like I am working on issues that matter beyond the sensationalism of the 24-hour news cycle.”

Stirton’s photos have appeared in National Geographic magazine, Newsweek, the New York Times Magazine, L’Express, Le Monde 2, GQ, GEO, and many other respected international titles.
