Somnyama Ngonyama, Hail the Dark Lioness
by Zanele Muholi
"I have been waiting for this book. Some photo books I tear through. This book stayed with me. I sat and I looked. I made tea and I read. Somnyama Ngonyama is a book about being seen. It’s about representation and agency, perception and assumptions. One hundred self-portraits that are at once both personal and political, paired with poems and written vignettes by over twenty authors, curators and poets. These photographs made me question what I thought I was, at first glance, seeing. The complexity of Muholi’s work is made even more powerful by the apparent simplicity of the photographs themselves, mirrored by the understated design of this gorgeous book. This is a book about the experience of being and the experience of seeing. It is about the monumental power of the image, as a historical record and as a catalyst for fundamental shifts in our perspective. This is a book to begin conversations.”
