Photographed by Simon Weller, “South African Township Barbershops & Salons” documents the prominence of small barbershops and salons in South Africa, and their symbolism as places for local community members to socialize in conversation. More photography finds.

As you know, I’m a woman who yearns, who longs for. This is the key to me and to the work, and something which is rarely discussed in reviews or essays, which I also find remarkably disappointing… mediated culture excludes us, denies us, erases us. But in the face of refusal, I insist on making work that includes us as part of the greater whole. Black experience is not really the main point; rather, complex, dimensional, human experience and inclusion - even in the shit, muck, and mire is the real point.
