One of South Africa's most acclaimed and prolific photographers, Santu Mofokeng came of age during Apartheid. While his early work depicted the cruel injustices of the Apartheid era, Mofokeng has continued to expand his documentation of the human experience, on scales both large and small.
Chasing Shadows takes an unflinching look at the South African society and beyond: night vigils, torture cells, tenant farming, urban neighbourhoods, and industrial landscapes. This volume features the finest examples of Mofokeng's black and white as well as colour images. The book also includes essays, related archival documents that bring the photographs into historic context, and an extensive interview with the photographer, making this volume the definitive book on Mofokeng's eloquent and timely work.
