Join us for a new Photo Lunch Talk on April 13, 2021 to meet with Thembinkosi Hlatshwayo, a photographer based in Lawley, Johannesburg and whose work studies the concepts of trauma, violence and memory.

Thembinkosi Hlatshwayo (born in 1993) is a photographer based in Lawley, Johannesburg. He uses the tavern run by his parents as a studio to investigate themes of first-hand and generational trauma, violence and memory.

In 2019, he won the CAP Prize for Contemporary African Photography with his series Slaghuis I. The same year, Hlatshwayo was the Gisèle Wulfsohn Photography Mentorship Recipient.

His work has been featured in group exhibitions at Fotomuseum Winterthur, IAF Basel Festival, and Johannesburg’s Turbine Art Fair.

In February 2020, he held his first solo exhibition, Slaghuis II, at the Market Photo Workshop, and was an overall winner of the international “Blurring the Lines” photo award for 2020.
