Fourthwall Books and Gallery MOMO announce the publication of first major retrospective book on Andrew Tshabangu
Posted on April 26, 2017.

Fourthwall Books and Gallery MOMO are pleased to announce the imminent publication of Andrew Tshabangu: Footprints, the first major retrospective book on the work of this acclaimed South African photographer.

The book, sponsored and supported by Gallery MOMO and Standard Bank, coincides with the exhibition Andrew Tshabangu: Footprints at the Standard Bank Gallery, Johannesburg. The book will be available in late May.

Andrew Tshabangu has been making photographs for over twenty years. He has traversed the city and the countryside - in South Africa and elsewhere - with an ease born of deep familiarity and empathy in order to show everyday lives made meaningful by the rhythms of work, faith and leisure.

Each series in this important book suggests a deep contemplation of the places, rituals and material conditions that have structured black life in South Africa, and an understanding of the ways in which people have made virtues of necessity, transformed the mean spaces bequeathed to them by apartheid and mobilised the terms of their own political and spiritual freedom.
