Heralded for his nuanced and penetratingly ambivalent portrayals of township life in South Africa, Santu Mofokeng first made his name as a member of the Afrapix collective, then as a documentary photographer for the African Studies Institute at Wits University, and finally as an independent artist.

This groundbreaking series of publications is the result of an unlikely multi-year collaboration between the photographer, bookmaker Lunetta Bartz, editor/curator Joshua Chuang and Gerhard Steidl. Together they have carefully mined and distilled over 30 years of work into 18 definitive “stories” that are sharply edited, simply presented and richly printed in an oversized format that recalls the golden age of picture magazines.

The stories range in subject from the zealous expressiveness found in “Train Church” and “Pedi Dancers,” and Mofokeng’s complex, long-form depiction of late-twentieth-century indentured servitude in “Labor Tenancies,” to the contested spaces of “Robben Island,” “Trauma,” “Landscapes” and “Billboards.” The majority of the pictures appears here for the first time. Taken together, they reveal the achievement of a major artist of, and for, our times.
