Opening tomorrow night from 17h30 in the Main Gallery at the KZNSA Gallery will be the third Photogarage group exhibition. Refreshments will be served.

Photogarage is an innovative experiential private photography school established and run by photographer Angela Buckland.

The objective of Photogarage is for people to reignite and explore their creativity through the photographic medium. The exhibition is the result of participants having completed three progression courses culminating in a final group exhibition. This is the 3rd group exhibition that Photogarage has undertaken. This years’ group show has seven participants, each with diverse expertise and interests.

Each participant has worked steadily and intensively for four months on a personal project.  Each project differs in its theme and photographic application.

Nindya Bucktowar has been imaging bamboo as a personal metaphor and another project photographing objects and rhythms found in the Durban CBD.

Leigh Corbett has documented insightful and tender images of primary caregivers and their children on life support.

Louise Johnson examines the relationship between domestic workers and the children they care for and turns the camera on herself with the woman who cared for her as a child.

Loraine Laas presents fascinating landscapes of Shaka’s Rock and interrogates the legends behind this historical site.

Nikhil Tricam provides a tapestry of street photography around Durban’s iconic Juma Masjid Mosque in Grey Street.

Olga von Eck explores the concept and the abstraction of ‘time’.
