Description: Your Mirror: Portraits from the ICP Collection Section: Self-presentation A photographer and self-described “visual activist,” Zanele Muholi’s mission is “to re-write a black queer and trans visual history of South Africa for the world to know of our resistance and existence at the height of hate crimes in South Africa and beyond.” Faces and Phases is an ongoing project begun in 2006 that emphasizes the creation of positive imagery of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) community (especially lesbians); Muholi sees it as part of a lifetime endeavor aimed at redefining the face of Africa both within and outside the continent.
