AtWork Harare Chapter 07 leader, AtWork Johannesburg Chapter 20 leader
Andrew Tshabangu is a South-African photographer, born in Soweto in 1966. His photography has been exhibited internationally in various exhibitions. Tshabangu is renowned for his surreal smoky lighting, documents the rituals of black communities in urban Africa.
Tshabangu claimed to be fascinated by the fact of photographing interiors of living spaces without the physical presence of the inhabitants.
In 2015, he participated in the exhibition The Divine Comedy: Heaven, Purgatory, and Hell Revisited by Contemporary African Artists (in Scad Museum, USA & Moderne Kunst Frankfurt/Main (MMK) in Frankfurt, Germany.) As a matter of fact, he asserted that his work was already a reflection on Dante’s ideas about hell, heaven and purgatory, and religion overall.
He is currently represented by MOMO Gallery and is exhibiting internationally.
Andrew came into contact with AtWork in December 2016 during Addis Foto Fest and we subsequently invited him to conduct AtWork Harare chapter.
