What We're Watching: Trevor Stuurman's First Exhibition
"What We're Watching" is our ongoing series dedicated to highlighting global programming as pertains to fashion, design, and culture (and the business engines behind them) all across the diaspora. This week's edition focuses on photographer-cum-designer Trevor Stuurman.
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - Trevor Stuurman is best known for his roaming group of fellow creatives Kwena Baloyi, Lulama Wolf, and Nandipha Mcoqo or from his photographic exploits while traveling in his native South Africa and across the continent.
Stuurman is celebrating his first solo exhibition HOME at HAZARD Gallery in Maboneng. These never-before-seen works capture Himba women and Ndebele initiates, reimagining the black body as a vessel of familiarity and distance. Taken in Swakopomund, Namibia and KwaNdebele, Stuurman's documentary photographs "interrogate ideas of home through the exploration of ‘cultures/traditions’ that he has experienced." A powerful step forward in his journey as a creative. On view until September 24.
