Lunga Kama at Stellenbosch University Museum

Get a closer look at black cultural identity through the lens of photographer Lunga Kama at Stellenbosch University Museum. Kama completed his MA in Visual Arts at the university in 2014 and resides in Kayamandi. His exhibition, entitled Ibhongo Lam, was opened by Bongani Mgijima, director of the museum, on 3 August and will run until November.

 

Kama says he uses the camera as an instrument to monitor his surroundings and as a means to affirm his black cultural identity. The exhibition is an interrogation of the black body and how it is represented in photography. The museum is at 52 Ryneveld Street and is open from Monday to Saturday between 9am and 4.30pm.
