About the Mentorship

The Gisèle Wulfsohn Mentorship in Photography will provide an emerging photographer the infrastructural support to develop a body of work over a year. The mentorship has been created by the family of the late Gisèle Wulfsohn to honour her memory and her work; and is seen as an opportunity to continue her approach and interests in photography. Wulfsohn dedicated her life and photography to awareness, openness and respect; she worked on issues of democracy, HIV/AIDS education and positive identities, social inclusion, gender issues and womens’ rights, and maintained a commitment to education and social change. The mentorship is aimed at developing emerging voices that are committed to similar issues.
