Currently running at Artisan Gallery is Africa Uncovered, a striking photographic essay by young Durban photographer Roy Esterhuysen, exploring the uniqueness which makes each woman beautiful.

"Gender Issues are a dominant them in South African politics and so too in the daily lives of women. Although admirable, it does place even more pressure on ordinary women to excel in an increasingly demanding environment. Stereotypes of how women should look, behave and possibly think cause these individual characteristics and quirks to be suppressed, hidden or to even cause embarrassment,” says Esterhuysen.

As a part of the celebration of August as Women's Month as well as a fundraiser for CANSA, Artisan Gallery will exhibit these stunning photos, as well as the limited edition book from August 24 to 29.

The opening event takes place today (Sunday, August 23) from 14h30 to 17h00 with all proceeds from the sale of these photographs and books going directly to CANSA SA. There will also be a lucky draw for one signed Africa Uncovered print.
