HER EYE ON THE STORM: A tribute to Gisèle Wulfsohn (18 March 1957 - 27 Dec 2011)

Opening: 16 August 2022 at 18:00 - 22 October 2022

As part of WAM’s year long focus on women for its 10th year and Wits University’s centenary celebrations during 2022, this exhibition is a visual homage to the extensive work and life of this important activist and social documentary photographer. Curated by Beathur Baker, independent curator, interdisciplinary cultural producer and filmmaker, the exhibition comprises more than 35 years of photographs that reflect on women’s rights, children’s communities, the importance of equal access to healthcare and treatment. 
Gisèle Wulfsohn’s portraits and visual essays bear testimony not only to the political and contemporary moment but also make real the human impact, the identities and lived experiences of those impacted by events away from the traditional spheres of influence and power.
Central to her imagery is the attempt to document the toils and triumphs of the lives of ordinary and iconic South Africans from across the socio-economic spectrum.
