Photography Exhibition on Taxis – Launch Marang a Letsatsi

Tuesday 28 October 2014
Mary Fitzgerald Square

Informal miners draining the soil, Durban Deep Mine, Roodepoort, 2013.

As part of the Joburg Photo Umbrella taxis are wrapped with the work of photographer Jerry Gaegane. Gaegane’s series Marang a Letsatsi deals with informal mining in Johannesburg.

This mobile exhibition project is an expansion and exploration of alternative approaches to display/presentation of photography art works. It seeks to give an opportunity for a continual interaction and engagement between a Community, Sites where narrative originates from and the body of work itself. This project, in particular aims to establish a dialogue on experiences of informal surface and underground miners on the West Rand and surrounding areas.
