I'm interested in reviewing any kind of photography, though projects or portfolios that are tightly edited will likely benefit most from my review. I am open to any and all genres, but especially interested in work with a strong voice and intent. I look forward to being surprised and learning new ways of working photographically.
About your reviewer
Mikhael Subotzky’s works are the results of his fractured attempts to place himself in relation to the social, historical, and political narratives that surround him both at home in South Africa and on his frequent travels. Executed in a variety of mediums – from photographs to film and video installations, and more recently collages, drawings and paintings – these works have been widely exhibited and collected.
Subotzky was born in 1981 in Cape Town, South Africa. He first became interested in taking pictures during his gap year in Southeast Asia and went on to study Fine Arts at the Michaelis School of Fine Art in Cape Town. His first body of photographic work, Die Vier Hoeke (The Four Corners), was an in-depth study of the South African penal system. Umjiegwana (The Outside) and Beaufort West extended this investigation to the relationship between everyday life in post-apartheid South Africa and the historical, spatial, and institutional structures of control.
