Zanele Muholi

Only Half the Picture


Published to coincide with Zanele Muholi's solo exhibition at Michael Stevenson, this book features more than 50 photographs dating from 2002 to 2006. A prominent activist, Muholi confronts the notion that lesbian practices are alien to African cultures, and offers a radical break from stereotypical narratives about black female sexualities. The book features an essay by academic Pumla Dineo Gqola, and reprints of newspaper articles in response to Muholi's groundbreaking work.
