What does it take to make a photograph? In Paul Mpagi Sepuya’s world, it takes a village. A very small one at that, but a village nonetheless… Is it possible to imagine the photographic/document not as a hierarchy-reinforcing by-product of relationships, but as the matrix of friendships, love, and solidarity itself? — Gökcan Demirkazik*
The show PAUL MPAGI SEPUYA—STAGE is in its closing week in Chicago.
Through May 29.
