Mario Macilau in Presence: Five Contemporary African Photographers

Photographers' Gallery, July 1 - August 28

Presence: Five Contemporary African Photographers is a new Print Sales Gallery exhibition showcasing works by artists active in Mozambique, South Africa and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, brought together under the umbrella of a new initiative, The Photographic Collective.


Encompassing social documentary, intimate portraits, still life and ethereal landscapes, the works on display illuminate diverse approaches to photography within an African context, offering a vivid insight into the wide range of practices, enquiries and key narratives shaping African photography today - from Leonard Pongo’s dreamlike landscapes that offer an alternative view of the Democratic Republic of the Congo to Mário Macilau’s exploration of religious practices in contemporary Mozambique.
